My Own Design

Ok, so now I can post about it...

I wrote my first pattern!!! And, it's being used by Make1 Yarn Studio for their sock club as the first pattern for 2007. **Gulp** I am both totally elated and totally nervous at the same time. I mean, what if there are glaring errors in the pattern? What if people hate it? What if? What if? This pattern is going out to a lot of people... too scary and cool all at the same time.

Ok, deep breath. As the ever wise Claudia puts it... well, check out #6. I guess no one will really die or go to jail if the pattern is a bit off... ok.

If you want to check out the pattern, check out the Make1 website.

This has been such a great week for me, truly. Besides having my pattern used for sock club, I am pleased to announce that I got the promotion that I was hoping for has been awarded. When I come back to work after my mat leave, I will be in a new position with a nice raise. The letter came today and I am totally thrilled. I have been working for the last two years to get this position.

So, on that happy note, I have two more weeks of work left and then I have the next while to spend at home with Bunny and the New Bean. Life is sweet.

Edited to add: I totally forgot - my sockapalooza pal left me a message asking how big my calf is around - it's 15.5" and from heel to back of knee is 15". Thanks sock pal! I can't wait!

I love the pattern Trish! I'm not part of the sock club though... is there any way i could purchase a copy?

Hi Gina,

I think if you call Make1 ( and ask them, they may be willing to sell the pattern alone. I will ask tomorrow at knit night and get back to you as to the policy on this. So flattered that you like the pattern so much!
