ever wonder where all the secret projects disappear to?
here’s a lacy sock i designed last spring for the woolgirl sock club april kit. i knew ahead of time that the color would be a deep blue, but had no idea what the yarn texture would be. when i received the light, soft yarn, i knew i needed a motif that would provide structure and stitch definition.
the resulting sock is luxuriously fine and dressy enough to wear with slim loafers under a professional trouser outfit—a little like that lacy lingerie we hide berneath our working clothes sometimes, heh. and who doesn’t appreciate a little warmth on an icy morning, dress shoes or not?
shown here: size medium in curious creek fibers wasonga, colorway old head of kinsale (a club-exclusive colorway, but there are many more beautiful choices!).
i am always thrilled to have a chance to work with jen at woolgirl, who offers an exciting array of exquisite yarns, covetous clubs, and delicious accessories in her online shop. she is also an incredible matchmaker of designers and dyers—i love participating in her clubs. thank you jen, for another wonderful opportunity.
