Some seriously frantic knitting has been going on at Castle Awesome, folks, and it is with great pleasure that I present to you the Monkey House Socks, as modelled on Mr Awesome’s shapely pins.
Inspired by the search for a mascot project, these socks have come to embody the Knitting & Crochet Blog Week experience for me. They are new and exciting, presented a challenge and also have the most rewarding of results. Called the Monkey House socks for the qualities of the House Of Monkey that went into the devising of the pattern, these socks are designed to make the most out of a skein of self-striping sock yarn.
I have listed these socks on Ravelry for download at the very reasonable price of $4.50. However, though it can be hard work and a bit stressful organising Knitting & Crochet Blog Week each year, I do get a sense of achievement in reading everyone’s blog posts and seeing people blogging along, so I am offering the pattern for free to anyone who has taken part in the Blog Week this year.
To get your free copy, please send me a PM on Ravelry, including your blog address, and I will send you a code to download the pattern for free. Both the download code and pattern are non-transferrable. Bloggers have until 11:59pm on Wednesday 1st May to request the download code which must be redeemed before 11:59 on Sunday 5th May.
Obviously, if you enjoyed Knitting & Crochet Blog Week and wanted to treat me to a coffee or something then you are very much welcome to buy an additional copy for a friend, or to treat yourself to a second pattern from my pattern store for less than the price of a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
