in this month of father’s day, briar rose chris and i would like to present the first in a collaborative series of socks to celebrate the men behind our fiber endeavors. they pack boxes, troubleshoot websites, build displays, vacuum, and above all, wholeheartedly inspire and fire our dreams.
why, they deserve namesake socks.
david’s sock is a composition of playful knit/purl openwork mixed with cushy garter-rib trimmings; it’s complex to the eye, but simply to work and comfy to wear—like david himself. yum.
shown here, size medium in briar rose grandma’s blessing, colorway, 9045.
i can’t say enough how much fun it is to work with my friend chris—she’s always up for a collaborative project “with a twist”, happily mixing special colorways to suit (and not just for me, but for anyone)! her online shop is a delight—please go!
ronni lent her special skills proofreading and buffing up the pattern once again (and this one was a toughy); thanks ronni!
carol actually wrote and ASKED to test knit the sock, since she had the yarn on hand, and as usual was a dream to work with—thank you carol!!
my buddy jocelyn also knit up a sample pair (you must click to go see), quick as a wink; how does she do it with kids, dogs, and work?? it must be the haircut . . . you’re the best jocelyn!
and of course to david, lovely husband and muse; thank you for all you do.
