I am a bit SOCKY...


Well, I am excited because I took 2nd place in the Lorna's Laces sock contest! I have won 3 copies of my patterns and 4 hanks of Lorna's luscious sock yarn! That's enough to make 2 pairs and I chose 2 of my favorite colors; Edgewater & Baltic Sea! You can see the colors here at my favorite yarn shop Jimmy Beans Wool

I named the socks 'Herringbone Lace' and the wonderful Lorna's folks are taking their knit up version to The National NeedleArts Association where lots and lots of people will see them. I can't wait to see which colors they choose to knit them in.

Now this may all seem a bit silly to anyone who may be reading this, BUT my wonderful friend and knitting mentor, Allison Judge, and I started 2 Askew Designs late last year and this is priceless publicity!

Thank you to all the wonderful people at Lorna's Laces
whose infinite dabbling in the paint pots is the inspiration for these socks and many of my other creations. I am currently working on an elegant shawl in one of the Limited Edition colorways (Becca's Last Day) in Lion and Lamb. OOOOhhhhhhh yummy silk blend, in a worsted weight yarn.




Anyway, I am a bit excited, and humbled. I am new to design and well, to be recognized by such amazing artists is quite nice. Thanks you Lorna's!
