pine cones

Posted on Posted in patterns

pine cones are one of my favorite natural objects—the shape, the surface texture, and the woodsy scent have a mysterious hold on me. i’m a sucker for vintage china decorated with pine cones and a spray of needles (though i own hardly any, i covet the pieces i see in others’ homes). this sock was originally created for the december, 2008 woolgirl sock club, to celebrate the winter months and now it can be shared with everyone to knit as fall approaches.

it was my complete pleasure to be paired with wendee at hazel knits to collaborate on a colorway for this design project. it was so fun to trade pictures and samples and then swatches as we worked toward the perfect yarn for this project and wendee really came through with a winner.
many thanks also to jen of woolgirl who is a genius at putting people and yarn together; her club kits are an adventure worth waiting for.

  1. Dear Anne–So cute! I hope you have a great time at the Sock Summit. If you have a chance, my friend Karin has a booth…the Periwinkle Sheep (I think it may be booth 800 or something). She asked a number of us to knit a sock for her to bring along…the turquoise sock is mine and of course I chose your pattern….the Roger sock is so much fun to knit and the colors were so great!

    Wish I could have been at Sock Summit…but alas not. Will live vicariously through you and others!

    All the best.

  2. Well, I fell in love with these socks the moment I saw them, and I even have just the right Hazelknits yarn in my stash waiting for the right pattern to come along. I went to your shop page and discovered that they are toe-up as well; perfect! These will definitely be my next socks.

  3. These are gorgeous! I thought I had all the sock patterns I could ever knit, but I was wrong. Gotta have these!

  4. Dang, Anne!!! Just as I was all set to start the Roger socks, you throw the Pine Cones at me. NOW which one to start first??? I love the pattern just straight down the middle. Way way cool. . . .

  5. Oh my, Anne! beautiful socks! Love Acorns!! Is your head still reeling from standing so close to all those famous knitters?? Don’t you know that they were taking pics of you and telling people they stood next to The Hanson???

  6. Oh wow……..Anne, they are beeutiful and a perfect sock for fall! I have the perfect yarn to try them in…. 😉

  7. Awww nooooo, I hear the cash register ringing me up!!! Looks like you had the most wonderful time!!! Great photos. 🙂

  8. Just when I wasn’t going to buy any more knitting related things…who was I kidding?
    I even had to order one of the winning colors from Dye for Glory.
    The temptations just never end……
    Love the pattern

  9. Beautiful socks! Believe it or not, my mom’s good china (the stuff she got when she got married 50 years ago) has pine cones and pine needles on it.

  10. Anne- I love Hazelknit’s colors- she does one called “Chuckanut Drive” which is my favorite.

    I love anything with an Autumn theme. Lovely.

  11. Anne, I share your pinecone fetish (pretty fond of maple leaves, and well, trees in general!) I’m so happy that I was able to get one of these kits & I’m looking forward to making them (after woodsmoke & bougainvilla which are both on my needles!). I throughly enjoyed your lace sock knitting class at the SS. I learned so much including how to pick up those pesty dropped yo and learned that I had been doing my yo backward for 30 years. I could tell when working the class sampler that doing them correctly made a big difference, lol! Thank you for a great class!

  12. Missing you! Hope you had a great sock summit. Next year for sure – maybe I’m doing my yo’s backwards too!! Yikes 🙁
