No secrets here. I love “The Doctor’s Wife.”
When Knitsch produced the Idris colourway, of course I stole some away!
And then I invented a sock with her. Warning, there is pooling involved. I know normally we wrinkle our noses at pooling, but I didn’t adjust the design, because I think the pooling actually works here. It looks kind of spacey-wacey.
See the little circle-y things? Don’t they remind you of the TARDIS console? And see the heel there? It’s on an angle! I know some bright sparks have probably already discovered this, but I was over the moon to hit upon a way to do a diagonal eye of the partridge type heel. It just looks brilliant.
And, as I’ve said before, but can’t really say enough, every sock needs to wear a bow tie, because bow ties are cool. (All my socks may soon have bow ties.)
So now the pattern is all done and with a test knitter, but what the hey. I had to have a little photo shoot.
Which allows me to present to you, my ‘Thief!’ socks!
