Sandra’s Fast Florida Footies

Sunday, November 21st, 2004

In the last week, I have been delighted on the knitlist and socknitters email list (and at the Mid-Michigan Knitters Guild), that folks are talking about my patterns and my classes. I’ve worked pretty hard to get out there and teach, and to do as great a job as I can for my students when I teach. It does my heart good to hear folks talking enthusiastically about my classes.

Particularly, talking about my ColorJoy Stole class, which is not merely a class about knitting from a pre-written pattern. It’s about color and texture and how to put yarns together, and how to fix mistakes when they happen. I put my heart and soul into that class, and it takes a full six hours for me to fit it all into one workshop.

Well, it is also a delight to see folks talking about my Fast Florida Footies on socknitters. I have had a steady stream of folks write me over the almost-two years it has been up as a free pattern on the internet (in one small size, but many socknitters adjust for size well). From searching my archives, I’ve shown many different versions of this footie here on the ColorJoy! blog. They are:


And now, Sandra adds her pair to the list. Hers are yet again different from all the rest, with two contrasting solid colors, and with the no-purl heel but not the purled sole (although it looks like she might have kept knitting the no-purl heel stitch underneath the wearer’s heel, perhaps). Don’t they look minty and refreshing on a blah and gray late fall day?
