Rain-Streaked Windows has been released into the world…
This stitch pattern combined with the colour of this yarn reminds me of the long, diagonal streaks created by raindrops landing on the side windows of a car in motion.
Rain-Streaked Windows is worked cuff down and features a dip stitch pattern that is mirrored on the other sock. If you’ve never worked dip stitches before, the pattern includes a link to a video of me demonstrating the technique.
Rain-Streaked Windows features heel flap and gusset construction, with the stitch pattern continuing on the heel flap of the sock. The dip stitches continue on the top of the foot, and the sock ends with a rounded toe that is grafted closed.
This pattern has been tech edited and test knit. Instructions are included for 5 circumferences, and foot length is customizable. Instructions for the stitch pattern are both written and charted and are needle-neutral so you can use your preferred needle style and method of knitting in the round.
You can download Rain-Streaked Windows with a 20% discount until Monday May 27th, 2019. You can find the pattern here.

The covers for my book, Footnotes have been revealed! I'm so excited to release this book into the world!
You can find a lookbook with photos of all the socks in the book here. If you'd like to sign up to be notified when the ebook and paperback are available for pre-order and release, you can sign up here.
I'm in the final stages of checking proofs from various printers, making last minutes edits, and figuring out the logistics of getting wholesale orders to the LYSs around the world who want to stock them.
Producing 1 pattern is a much different process than producing a book of 11 patterns. One thing I've learned is that shipping proof copies from anywhere outside Canada to anywhere inside Canada is a longer-than-expected process. For this reason, I've moved the release date from June 1st to June 13th. I really want to ensure the best quality possible before it's released.
