I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

Soctoberfest has started!

So, did YOU celebrate socks today?

I have only managed to take a photo of the sock that I started on April 4th of last year. The weather got warm soon after I started it so it was put in the inactive file. But the weather is starting to cool off and I will need more socks soon. I would really like to get this pair finished so I can make a pair from this beautiful new yarn that just arrived.

It is Wildfoote Luxury Sock yarn from Brown Sheep. The color is a beautiful tweedy lavendar. Most of my socks have been knit in the self patterning yarns so they are usually a basic stockinette. I would like to try something else with this yarn so it will really show itself off!

I will have to look through some patterns and see if I can figure out what kind of sock this yarn wants to be. With a name like Wildfoote the possibilities look very interesting!
