The owls are out!

As promised, the Owlsocks pattern has just been released.Pick it up here on Ravelry or here, in my Etsy shop. I'll pop one of those cute little peectures over my sidebar for your future clicking pleasure.Maybe you'd like to learn a little bit more about the Owlsocks? Here goes:

Do you like owls? Do you like socks? We may have a found a perfect match!

Stately owls perch on these unique large-motif (but not intarsia) colourwork socks. The soles are striped so that the owl motif can be comfortably worked across the instep and the foot. Also, stripey socks are fun! Who can say no to stripey-soled socks?

Use as many or as few colours as you like for your socks! This would be a great way to use up odd bits of sock yarn.

The pattern is a clear, concise, 5-page .pdf file with large charts and images, which I will send via your PayPal email address as soon as I possibly can after I receive payment.

Size: Women’s Medium (or any foot/leg that is 8” in circumference.)

Gauge: 8 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.

Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 2 (2.75 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.

Super cute socks. They remind me of a Simpson's episode where Lisa Simpson is excited because she's going to 'owl camp'!

I nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger Award. Check my blog.

These just make me laugh! Think I have to make them for my mom. Would you consider designing frog socks (no, silly, not socks FOR frogs) next?
