I’m so excited to announce that the pattern for my Mont Royal socks is now available! You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or here on the blog.
I had a great time designing these socks. They are inspired by my trip to Montreal and a wonderful, Quebec-based dyer I discovered while I was there, Riverside Studio. (Seriously check out Kathryn’s yarns. I can’t say enough good things about them and have loved working with her merino sock yarn for this design.)
These socks are perfect for people who enjoy working lace on smaller projects. They feature an addicting leaf motif running along the top of the foot and front of the leg with an accenting lace motif along the back of the leg. Really, I will jump at any almost any chance to incorporate leafy lace motifs into a project. They are one of my favorite types of lace to work because they are so beautiful, but are actually quite a simple lace motif to work.
I want to send a big giant “thank you” to my two lovely test knitters: Steph and Emily. They both made the test knitting process so easy and fun. I love watching a project grow off someone else’s needles! (Check out their blogs for some “in-progress” posts.) And for some even more exciting news, Emily will be hosting a giveaway for a copy of the pattern next week, so be sure to head over there and enter!
