Living the Knit Life


International Women's Day And A New Sock Pattern!

In honour of International Women's Day on Wednesday March 8th, I've released, Heroes, a pattern inspired by heoric women.

Heroes is available with a 20% discount using the coupon code 'Heroes' until March 8th in my Ravelry store.


You can pay full price and I will donate 20% of all full price proceeds to www.unwomen.org. 

As soon as I saw this yarn I was inspired to knit with it! Yarn Geek Fibers offers a line of yarns that are inspired by and named for inspirational, awesome women. This particular colourway is named for autism advocate, Temple Grandin. She’s a hero.

This yarn landed on my doorstep a few days before the Women’s March on January 21st, 2017. Witnessing women all over the world stand and march together with one voice made me feel more hopeful and inspired than I had in a long time. It made me hopeful for my daughter’s future and for the future of women everywhere.

Heroes is worked from the top down and features a textured stitch pattern on the front and back of the leg.  The pattern continues on the heel flap.  The heel flap and gussets are worked simultaneously before the heel is turned (so there are no gusset stitches to pick up) and the pattern then continues on the top of the foot.  The toe is grafted closed using Kitchener stitch.
