I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

The fact that this is a saga has nothing to do with the design. And since I, the knitter, am writing this, I’m going to say it has nothing to do with the knitter. As I often do when yarn doesn’t pool in a manner that pleases me, I blame the yarn. Now, I’ll put up with some misbehavior from a yarn if it will in the end, bend to my will. and it did. After four cast ons, I was able to come up with something other than blue on the front and purple on the back.

What I note about pooling yarns is that the first one pools like silk and I get suckered in and then the second one eats me for lunch. Isn’t that always the way? Before too long, Hunter Hammersen will be publishing this pattern, and along with it, there will be more flattering pictures of these beauties.

As you know, I’m a bit of a Hunter Hammersen fangirl. So, when she started knitting these socks on her blog, I was following along. Then she mentioned an option for a “swoopy thing on the foot” and I got really excited. They are nice plain, but add in something swoopy and I’m smitten. So, I started commenting on her blog and ravelry about how I couldn’t wait to see the swoopy business and the next thing you know, I’m knitting swoopy thing on the foot socks for the pattern. It’s all VERY exciting! Look here. That’s me! I’m a “super awesome secret knitter”. whee! and to sweeten the pot, the yarn she sent me for the socks is String Theory Caper Sock in Beach Plum and ya’ll, it is delicious!

The pic doesn’t do it justice, so for now, you’ll have to trust me. Delicious!

Don’t worry, I’ll let you know when the pattern is out. I’m already dreaming of a second pair. I’m not sure yet if I’ll go plain or swoopy, but man, this pattern is addictive.
