Introducing: Lucky Bamboo

Happy Halloween!

I have a new pattern to introduce to the world. This was a design for's October Sock Club, in conjunction with Sunshine Yarns. I'm now introducing it for sale. (The original plan to introduce it on November 1st has sort of been bumped up a bit, based on a myriad of technical reasons that mostly amount to me only being able to access the web through iPhone or at work during lunch, and doing all of this by iPhone would have been a total nightmare.)

So! Lucky Bamboo:

Lucky Bamboo a top-down construction crew-length sock that utilizes an easy-to-memorize lace pattern - which extends onto the flap heel for a bit of sass. It calls for a fingering weight sock yarn - I suggest Sunshine Yarns, of course, because it's fabulous stuff, but you could certainly use any other sock yarn you had in stash or had been dying to purchase. (Wink!)

Lucky Bamboo

The pattern does contain a simple chart for the lace pattern, and the pattern is easy enough for a newbie sock knitter to follow. I'm doing this one as a Ravelry PDF download for $5.00. If you don't have a Ravelry account (why don't you have a Ravelry account?! it's awesome!) or you really don't care for downloads and need a printed copy mailed to you instead, hey, drop me a line by e-mail or comment. I'd hate for you to pass it by....we can work it out! If you want to check out the Rav download, click da button:

ETA: Kristi, who be smarter than me, sez: Click da button, non-Rav-accounters, it'll still let you buy and download! Whee!

Have a wonderful weekend!
