So, I told you about the pattern which was a long time ago the spark of the idea for a new collection of sock patterns: Blue Monday.
It all started in a group on Ravelry I am in, where somebody suggested to knit a pair of socks for each day of the week over the course of a year. I knew right away that I would like to go ‘freestyle’, i.e. design my own patterns and the first skein of yarn I picked from my stash was a bright blue yarn with a bit of glitz added. And in my head the socks were called Blue Monday right from the start.
Now, Blue Monday is the name of a song by the British New Wave band New Order, which was very popular back in the 80’s and
you couldn’t go to any club without hearing that song. I remember it immediately when working with my sparkling blue yarn and just like that the idea for a 'musical journey through the week' was
born. Shall we listen to the song, what do you think?
For Blue Monday I picked a ribbed stitch pattern with cables, which is a regular pattern but which looks a bit like the cables choose their way randomly, because I think it resembles the rhythm of the song: Straightforward, but with some unexpected twists.
The Blue Monday pattern is already available as individual download from my Ravelry store and as of tomorrow, it will also be available as part of the Eight Days A Week collection.
