New Pattern

Just in the nick of  time for Valentines Day, I bring you Heart&Sole :


Knit from the cuff-down, Heart & Sole uses slipped stitches to create heart motifs so there is no stranded knitting.  Stranded knitting is my weak spot as a knitter.  I have severe stranded knitting tension issues and not enough patience to work them out.  One day.  One day I will conquer stranded knitting, but today is not that day!

Heart & Sole uses an afterthought heel so the striping pattern is not interrupted to work the heel.
I used KnitPicks Stroll Brights in Pucker and Vibrant Violet.   This is neon yarn, people - you may need sunglasses to knit with it.  Also, it is extremely challenging to photograph.

Ideally, I would have made this pattern available sooner than 2 weeks before Valentine's day, but the idea did not come to me until January and the recent blizzard in the North-eastern US made my tech editor unavailable for a few days - hopefully any future holiday-themed-ideas I get will have better timing.

Heart&Sole is 50% off until Midnight (EST) Thursday February 5th - no coupon code required. You can buy it on Ravelry (Ravelry is my favourite on-line pattern marketplace because the pattern stays in your library forever and you can always re-download it if you lose it) or from my Designs page.  It will also be available in my Craftsy and Etsy stores later today.

I can't wait to see all the finished Heart&Sole projects!
