Calendar Socks

Earlier this week I went to the bookstore to pick up Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects with Patterns. While there I quickly browsed through the page-a-day calendars and came across the Stitch ‘n Bitch Page-A-Day Calendar: The Knitter’s Calendar and picked it up.

I flipped through it during my lunch break. On leap day, I found this:

sock pattern
29 Feb-2 Mar: Spring in Your Step socks

My pattern and my mom’s feet!

I haven’t read through the pattern yet to check for any printing issues, but I will be publishing the pattern here as well, I just need to clean up the files. Here’s another picture of the pattern itself. It’s also listed on ravelry.

As for what I’ve been up to lately, here’s my backyard’s current state. Oy.

    I am so in love with those socks! What’s funny is that the 29th is a month before my wedding (and the day some final payments are due) and that pattern bears an uncanny resemblance to the pattern on my veil. Ok, maybe it’s just funny for me, but it makes me seriously want the socks!
