third in the series of socks dedicated to our guys, this sock is named for chris’s son nate, a key player in the briar rose team, making sure their beautiful website runs the way it ought to. i picked this pattern for nate’s sock because it has a 1940s vintage feel that fits his offbeat sense of humor. the orange was all his idea, but i have to agree, it makes for fun knitting.
shown above: size medium in briar rose grandma’s blessing, a superwash merino sport yarn, in colorway, 9058a.
chris and i are SO excited to be going to sock summit—it’s been many months in the planning and now we are on the verge of meeting at the event (many hugs and squeals are anticipated. and some beer, please). please visit our booth (817-819) to see chris’s beautiful yarns and socks (and sweaters and shawls!). she will have all of her fibers available, as well as patterns for these socks and much, much more.
ronni, who has been piloting a big move from texas back to california these last few weeks, has also managed to squeeze in some proofreading and other essential work; she deserves a big hand. we are also excited to be seeing her next week at SS!
and to david, our model—thank you!
i must apologize for having so few photos this time; we were on a deadline with this sock and i shipped them off to chris before i realized we hadn’t done a full photo shoot. but here are a couple more, anyway . . .
