Rae’s Sock Design in MagKnits

Slinky Socks by RaeHey everybody! Lansing’s Rae Blackledge, proprietor of Rae’s Yarn Boutique and my sometimes-boss, always-friend, has a design in MagKnits!

What’s MagKnits? It’s an online knitting magazine. What’s her design? Socks! Not just any socks, though. Slinky Socks. In eight (count ’em) sizes from an infant to Ladies’ XL. With a cool cuff that looks Rainbow Brite or something fun like that, but with no purling (tricky grrl, that Rae). Not one purl in the whole design, though it looks as though there are many!

The socks also include an afterthought heel for those itching to try that technique, or for those who want a replaceable heel because they wear theirs out quickly. (Yes, they can look funny off the foot but they look just great when you wear them… I promise. The pair I’m wearing today were made this way, as a matter of fact. Go look for yourself at the MagKnits site.)

But Rae’s not the only local person involved with the pattern. My friend, Sharon P of Knitknacks was test knitter/sample knitter for the infant socks shown on the pattern page and here to the left. Cute, cute cute!

Congrats, Rae! May your website get deluged with hits because of this newfound fame.
