Let's kick off the new year as the old one ended - with a new sock pattern: Picnic.
Picnic is also an addition to my (No longer virtual) Friends collection and the pattern came to life because of my visit to the Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY, in 2016. Not only was it a fantastic show, but it also gave me the opportunity to meet with long-time Ravelry friends for the first time. Meeting point: Around noon in the picnic area.
These socks, designed for my Ravelry friend Linda, are knit cuff down and feature an all-over textured pattern, which reminds me of picnic tables, hence the name of the pattern. They are worked with heel flap and gusset and the textured pattern is continued onto the heel flap.
The pattern is available as individual download or as part of the (No longer virtual) Friends collection from my Ravelry store, here
