Beautiful Molly shows off my modified version of the sporty original Pin-Striped Sweater Tee marvelously . . .

Modifications  were to crop the waist, and lengthen the sleeves by simply continuing the pin-stripe pattern from the provisional cast-on before ribbing for the cuff, with no decreasing except for at the underarm gusset (that gusset part still needs a bit of tweaking).  Shall I modify the pattern I am wondering, to include this variation?

 Above all . . .

Always ask for exactly what you prefer in life Molly, because most times really good things happen as a result. I thank you so much for asking if I could make your tee with longer sleeves and shorter waist, because I believe I love it most of all this way and will make one just like it for myself ~~~ xoxo from your Auntish !!

Penny Candy Socks ~ The Pattern

Remember these?

Well, I’ve been crunching numbers for a few days, and though I’ve lacked actual test-knitting of all the sizes, they seem correct  to me from a mathematical perspective. Written in sizes from Little Kid to Big Kid, and I will be test-knitting all the sizes I haven’t already, as the summer blossoms and wilts, and intending to have a lot of fun doing so !

So folks, the Penny Candy Socks pattern can be found HERE , and less than one week into summer, which is pretty good, as my goal was to post them on the actual Summer Solstice. Not bad at all.

Just a little hello from my sister-in-law Pam’s feet & her dog Peggy !

I just wanted to get over this hump and submit this pattern today, though I only decided to get down to it, and polish the draft at noon. Its now 4 o’ clock and Emma is quite gloomy because we haven’t walked since Wednesday, and that was two days ago.

Okay, so where is this pattern you might ask???

Why on my pattern page right up there in the patterns menu, or just click  right here

But also you can see it on Ravelry in my pattern store here.

So, whats all this exhausting business of knitting pattern prototypes, and writing patterns? I have had little rest, you’d think I’m obsessed ! ( I guess I can’t hide the fact very well. ) I am actually looking forward to posting about something mundane again, like a picture post of a lovely walk in the woods, or something from my garden (which is doing quite well, with more tomato plants than I’ve ever had before), or just some knitting related Object d’ Arte about the house. But for now, if you’ll excuse me, Emma and I have a walk to do !
