I have the most exciting news to share with you all. I’m planning to embark on my knitwear design ‘career’ and publish a pattern for socks! There’s an enormous amount to learn, but it’s also exciting and a bit nerve-wracking as well. If you’ve been following my Instagram account for a while, you’ll have seen this lattice pattern. It showed up about 4 months ago and after a few revisions, rip backs, re-knits, tears and swearing, it finally all came together.
These are my Rose Ladder Socks.
The name comes from a mis-translation I saw while living in Asia. One day when I was in a flower market I saw a man selling garden trellises with a hand lettered sign in English which read “Rose Ladders”. I was charmed by this and in some ways, I like the name better.
I don’t have a publication date just yet, but I’d like to have them out by early summer – just in time for the roses.
