Knitting Pattern Release : Suchet Socks

I'm excited to announce the release of my second sock pattern : Suchet Socks!

Suchet Socks are a simple, classic ribbed sock with just enough interest along the top of the leg to give them a nice grip, and an interesting pattern to enjoy knitting.  These are just perfect for the guy in your life who loves hand knit socks, but doesn't want anything too "colorful" or "fussy."  Of course, they also work wonderfully with colorful yarns!

If you're like me, you like to keep a pair of socks on the needles most of the time (or several socks, as the case may be).  These are perfect travel knitting.  Just enough to do to keep it interesting, but without being glued to a chart all the time.

About the name, Suchet Socks :  The colors in this yarn reminded me of one of my favorite shows, Agatha Christie's Poirot.  The actor who plays Poirot in the series is named David Suchet.  So there you go.  Order and method, order and method.
