it takes two

I am ridiculously excited to have completed (and written up) my very first original pattern. Although these socks make no claims to innovative creativity or revolutionary construction, they are quick, easy, and warm.
“These cosy slipper-socks were inspired by a friend’s trip to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Drawing on traditional aran knitting, the simple mirrored cable motif represents fishermen’s ropes. The idea being that the means to pick yourself up, haul yourself in, and keep on going are right at your feet.
N.B. The socks are knit from the toe up using the “magic loop” method. The directions assume a basic knowledge of toe-up sock construction, including casting on and short-row heel construction.”
Right now I’m trying to figure out the ins and outs of setting up a Ravelry shop and of getting the file ready to download on the blog. If you’ll bear with me, the free .pdf will be available soon.
I think I’ve gotten the .pdf posted to the blog, on the new “pattern” page above.  Let me know if there are any problems.  Happy knitting!
