At long last - Blue Monday's 'siblings' made an appearance and as of now the Eight Days a Week collection with one sock pattern for every day of the week plus one bonus pattern is available from my Ravelry store. All patterns can be purchased as single download or - at a heavily discounted price - as collection including all eight patterns.
I'd like to give a bit of spotlight to each of them and since it's Tuesday today, let's listen to todays song.
And here are the socks inspired by Ruby Tuesday, the classic by The Rolling Stones.
It's a rather sad song about people falling in love and leaving each other again, a song about regrets not being able to keep your loved one. My choice for the pattern is a wide cable, to resemble paths that cross but finally drift apart from each other at the toe.
The socks are worked from the cuff down with heel flap and gusset. The all-over Mini Cables pattern that forms the 'background' for the wide cable is continued onto the heel flap.
