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!

Hi, Kirsten. I couldn't find an e-mail address for you, so I'm contacting you this way. Just wanted to say thanks for the free scarf pattern, turbindigo. Just finished my version and you'll find some photos here: http://lorizartmaniac.blogspot.com/2008/02/zig-zag-scarf.html

I'm a sorta new knitter, so this was a real challenge for me!


Gorgeous!!! I love this pattern! I've been a little out of the blog loop for a while, but what a great surprise to come back and see this. Congrats! ;)

wow, congrats! the pattern is beautiful! and those two test knits? so pretty!!!!

Those look awesome!!! I love being able to see it in different color combos. It give a better idea of what a difference yarn can make!! They are all really pretty :)

So beautiful....I especially like the blue and yellow colourway...zesty!

Gorgeous! I love all the colors that were used.

Beautiful! It's cool to see it in so many color options!

They are all very beautiful, but I still like your color combo best!

Okay, I can't take it any more- what company DOES the son's girlfriend's mother own????

Good Lord woman, that might be your most amazing pattern yet!

Wow - talented knitters for sure! I love the Scout colors and have that calendar as my desk top! Your pattern is amazing, per ususal!:) I have never tried colorwork, but I am seeing some in my future! Congrats on another job well done!

So mamy pretty Sigrids, and I don't think you could have picked better test knitters. And, AND, you are the most generous person ever. I received my package today and it blew my mind. Thank you so much, Kirsten!

My word but your blog and patterns are beautiful.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. You guessed correctly which was my son's knitting! Sadly though, two others beat you to it by mere minutes. Thanks for playing along though.

I'll be back to enjoy your gorgeous blog.

Oh wow, fantastic pattern! Bev is definitely a super fast knitter.

All I can say is W-O-W! That sock, holy cow, it's so great! You're talent amazes me!

Wow!! This is the first sock pattern that I've ever felt the need to make now. So, here's a question... I know nothing about knitting socks... is this going to cause me to want to poke my eyes out with my needles?

Wow! I love the way the different colorways make the socks look so different. You could knit this pattern over and over again and always make it seem new!

ohhh.. i have been eyeing those socks since stacey cast on for them.
they are gorgeous!

Love this pattern!

Hoo-ray!! I can't keep up with all your great socks! That color combo on Bev's is stunning.
