Knitting progress - two pairs of socks

It's finally official - I've finished two sock patterns, and they're now available here for your perusal. The first, Sunwise, uses a simple moss-rib stitch pattern to create columns which wend their way slowly around the leg and across the top of the foot.

Written in three sizes, this pattern was designed to be wearable by either sex, and for each sock in the pair to be identical, or symmetrical, as the wearer or knitter, desires. Will a symmetrical pair enable you to escape the dreaded second sock syndrome? Or would you like to choose between a Sunwise (clockwise) and Widdershins (anti-clockwise) pair?

Available through Ravelry or by clicking the button below for just £2

The second pattern is named for the gulls' evoked in the colourway so expertly designed by Juliet and for the simple lace pattern so familiar from the February Baby and Lady's Sweaters.  

Kittiwake combines this feminine, chevron lace with a twisted rib pattern and a slip-stitch heel which flow from its points. The heel flap splits the stitches unevenly, which may look peculiar while you're working it, but ensures a snug fit when the extra ease of the lace work comes into play.

Again, this is available through Ravelry, or through the button below for £2.

Hello lovely Ruth,

I regularly pop over to see what's up in your corner of the world. It looks like things are inspiring and keeping you busy. Fabulous.

I've just opened my Etsy shop and I'm really happy! I would be really chuffed if you came to my blog to take a peek...
