Eagerly waiting…

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

larksockyarn.jpgI got word from Lark Books today that they are sending me back the pair of socks I knit for them. Photo sessions are complete for the book my socks are in!

My socks will be in a book coming out in early October (assuming all goes as planned). I did not write a whole book, but I wrote a pattern for one sock design which will be included in a collection.

My pattern uses three colors, and there is a small amount of stranded colorwork (sometimes called fairisle), used in balance with easier-to-knit stripes. The version in the book was knit from these three colors of “Pace” sockyarn by Universal. A friend, Mary, tested the sock in cooler colors and it looked great that way as well. It’s a fun sock, and it will be a fun book.

In order to respect the publisher, I am not saying much more than that until I get word I can say more. They did say I can mention I have a design chosen for a book and show the yarns, so that’s as far as I will go today. It’s not at all my style to keep secrets, but in publishing I am expected to keep the surprise fresh.

I will now make an attempt to not think about this too much until the book arrives. After all, we waited a long time for warm weather. I do not want to wish the summer away!
