Knit Simple Winter 09/10

Knit Simple Winter 09/10

The new issue of Knit Simple- which hits the newsstands tomorrow-January 26- features a great tutorial on socks – and it uses our own Happy Feet.  This sock yarn is a magnificent blend of fine merino superwash and nylon with a high twist for great strength.  Happy Feet is available in over 20 colors.  There is also a DK weight version called Happy Feet DK.

Happy Feet isn’t just for feet

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

Talitha Kuomi is a talented designer who has used Happy Feet sock yarn for some interesting bracelets.  She calls them Pleasant Places, and her pattern is available on Ravelry. 

This is a wonderful way to use Happy Feet- either alone, or as bits & pieces for one band each.   Talitha found it to be a wonderful way to use up leftovers.  You could knit one bracelet  in each of 10 sock yarn colorways.

Tal says she has toyed around with knitting in beads along with the Happy Feet and with tiny cables running around the length of each band.  You can really let your imagination out to play on this one. 

The pattern for Pleasant Places is written so that you can make this “to fit” for any size wrist and forearm from pre-teen to adult.

My thanks to Talitha Kuomi for allowing me to present her ideas here.  Feel free to contact Talitha on ravelry or at talithakuomi@live.com with any questions.

Check out Tal’s other designs on Ravelry.com.
