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

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.

    I LOVE the swoopy thing! Haha. This type of sock pattern is my favorite. I like a really basic sock with an element of interest.

      I love that the ribbing looks fancy but isn’t hard at all and was quickly memorized. I’m already considering another pair. Thanks for stopping by! :)
