I am now a sock pattern designer!

I did it!  I have been working for months and months on designing several new color work sock patterns.  Cindy has been test knitting my patterns and I finally have the first pattern complete and ready to show you.

Trip Up The Nile Socks by Benita Story

So, what do you think of them?

I have them available both as a pattern and as a full kit with yarn, pattern and reinforcement yarn on Dyed in the Wool.  They were really fun to design, and these are the simplest I have designed so far.  Each one ( and I am working on the 6th design right now out of 10)  gets a little more detailed and intricate than the last.

And as a bonus, each design has a story to go along with it.  Why? Well, you know I write scripts for comic books, right?  I decided that, since I can’t draw my own sequential art comic, I can turn my little stories into a sequential art socks, of which Trip Up The Nile is the very first.

So, if you have never taken a Trip Up The Nile, here’s your chance.  If you have, then here’s a reminder of your trip.  Either way, I hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I have enjoyed putting it all together for you.

Gee, what country will I take you to, next?
