Colorful Barberpole Sox

Thursday, January 30th, 2003

I’m so excited! My friend Deborah Harowitz (ScarletZebra.com) sent me photos of two pair sox she knit using my Barberpole Sox pattern! Check these out! She competes for the title ColorJoy Grrl, don’t you think???

Deborah used Cascade Fixation (sportweight) cotton/lycra yarn. She bought it one day last fall when she and I met halfway between our homes, at Elaine’s Yarn Shop in Davison, Michigan. Too bad we live so far away from one another, as we both drive over an hour to meet there. It makes meeting an infrequent joy at best. Fortunately, we have email to keep us connected between visits.

Deborah is not only a knitter, but she is a dyer and quilter among other occupations. I have seen her work and it is wonderful. Last year she designed a sweater in hot fuschia and chartreuse (hot yellow-green), an asymmetrical sweater with many textures and many yarns. It is truly a masterpiece. I’ve also seen her quilting with hand embellishment. Very nice work. Her Scarlet Zebra website (link above) offers supplies for dyers, knitters, quilters and weavers. You might want to check it out. The website has a new design recently. Deborah is doing all the web design work herself these days, as well as running the rest of her business. I wonder when she sleeps???

Thank you, Deborah, for making my day! These sox are purely ColorJoy!
