New Pattern: Sigrid
Thanks to the hard work of some talented test knitters, Sigrid is finally ready.
Stacey over at On and Off the Needles is so experienced with color work socks. I couldn't have asked for a better test knitter for this pattern. Scout dyed two beautiful colors for her, Sage and Hunker Down. Check it out, Scout even made a calendar out of a photo of the colors.
I love to see different color combinations of stranded patterns. Stacey's looks so different than mine. Its muted colors are really beautiful.
My good friend (blogless) Bev used much brighter colors when she test knit the pattern.
I don't think I know a faster knitter than Bev. She made the pair in under a week. We need to enter her in one of those fastest knitter contests!
