Last summer, while strolling the marketplace aisles at Sock Summit, I received a submission call from Interweave for Sockupied, their innovative emag all about (what else?) sock knitting. I was unable to meet the deadline with my travels, and informed the good people at Interweave of that fact. They asked me to submit a more specific design, built around one of my Sock Summit classes, with a later deadline. This was for the issue that would be released as Simply Sockupied.
That stripy design on the cover? It's mine!
Speed Bump socks are perfect for the beginner, and the pattern contains a bunch of tips and tricks that will allow you to let the yarn do the work. A bit of polish, a smidge of texture, and a lot of fun.
If you knit a pair, drop me a line and let me know how you do!
