Harlequin Socks — Finding a Rhythm

I’ve been distracted with traveling and teaching so I haven’t made much progress on my Harlequin socks (designed by Anne Berk) from New Directions in Sock Knitting. But now that I’m home again, I’m finding a nice rhythm and am getting close to the start of the heel.

Fortunately, the diamond pattern isn’t worked on the heel stitches. That would be a bit much to keep track of while working the short-row shaping!

For those of you who’d like to follow along and knit your own socks from New Directions In Sock Knitting, Interweave Press (my publisher) has generously contributed some copies for me to raffle off while I knit my way through the designs.

Respond to this post and tell me why you’d like to knit a sock from a new direction and I’ll announce a winner on Tuesday, March 22.
