Dizzy and the Jazz Collection

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Introducing… the Dizzy sock pattern!


This brand new pattern, named after Dizzy Gillespie, features large reverse stockinette and rib chevrons. There are 3 sizes, all charted, with mirrored left and right socks. By shifting stitches around, the horizontal waving bands of reverse stockinette blend in seamlessly without a jog. You’ll spin around, dizzy with delight! You can purchase Dizzy through the Cookie A Ravelry Store.

The Jazz Collection

Also in honor of the Sock Knitters Anonymous knitalong, for a very limited time through the end of May only, all 6 jazz themed sock patterns will be available as a bundle for $20. This includes Dizzy and 5 previously published patterns that have been heavily updated since their original release: Thelonious, Ellington, Ornette, Mingus, and Calloway. You must be a member of Ravelry to purchase this bundle which is available in the Ravelry Store.

Jazz Cover

Ellington has been re-worked in the beautiful String Theory Caper sock. The charts have been completely re-done in a simplified and more streamlined manner.

Calloway, a past favorite with swerving lace panels and cabled medallions, has been re-formatted and re-worded.

Mingus has been re-charted, re-formatted with two sizes added, and re-worked in the beautiful Hazel Knits sock yarn.

Thelonious, originally released in 2007, was updated and included in the book Knit. Sock. Love. That updated version is included in this bundle.

Ornette has been updated with new streamlined charts and an additional size. New photographs show Ornette knitted in Wollmeise sock yarn. The updated pattern calls for a tighter gauge of 9 stitches per inch in stockinette to match the new yarn. It can be knit at the original gauge of 8 stitches per inch and down one size to achieve the same sizing.



Pattern sales donated to flood relief

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Aside from the Sock Club which has been so much fun (truly a gift that just keeps on giving), 2011 hasn’t been the best of years. My cousin sent me a photo of her flooded house which is 5 blocks from my parents’ house.

If you’ve been reading the international news (I’ll admit I’m pretty guilty of not keeping up much of the time),  you may know that about a third of Thailand is flooded. One article from Guardian had the subtitle “Red Cross warns of ‘humanitarian crisis’ in Thailand’s capital, as people face food shortages, illness and crocodile attacks” which really is no joke. Not only crocodiles, but Bangkok is home to a lot of snakes including king cobras. And then there is the threat of malaria and dengue fever. All in all, it’s really sad to see what’s happening. This CNN article has some photos, and I’m surprised how everybody seems to mostly be going on with life even with all the water around them.

So for today and all of November, 100% of pattern download sales will be donated to flood relief, most likely the Thai Red Cross Society.
