Socks for Autumn

Orange socks with a lace leaf pattern up the foot and legIt’s definitely the start of sock weather season here in Scotland. There’s a distinct chill on our way to school in the mornings and I’m almost ready to break out the woolly hats and gloves! The trees are a patchwork of green and orange, leaves are starting to fall and my daughter found her first conker of the year this week, so it’s the perfect time to introduce you to Foghar, the latest addition to my Four Seasons of Socks collection!

With the name meaning autumn, this sock had a lot to deliver but I think between the colour and the falling leaf motif Foghar really delivers on that! The yarn was a fantastic find from Dusty Dimples called Foxy – as soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be perfect for this and it was the perfect time to pull out this dropping leaf pattern that I’ve wanted to use for ages! My testers have used a wide variety of yarns as you can see at the bottom – most are linked to their instagram accounts, a couple have their Ravelry names posted (but no direct link) and one wanted to remain anonymous.

I don’t want to talk about Ravelry too much, but they announced this week that Classic will be turned off on 31st March 2021. As Merino (NuRav) gives me migraines, and Herdwick (the paler version) also gives me headaches and nausea, I’m trying to build a more secure income outside of Ravelry.

I’ve set up a Patreon page and I’d be really grateful if you’d check it out and considering joining me! There’s weekly updates, so you can currently read all about my next design, see the first preview of the design after and find out about a secret project I’m working on!

If you are unable to use Ravelry anymore and need help retrieving patterns you’ve bought from me, please do email me, and I’ll send them to you. If you’ve bought any of the other patterns in my Four Seasons of Socks collection through Ravelry, and are unable (or don’t want to) use the site to buy the rest, please send me an email, and I’ll sort you out with a discount code for my website for the amount you’ve already paid!

If you want to find out what I’m up to between blog posts you can keep an eye on what I’m up to on Instagram! If you’d like an exclusive 40% discount on future releases sign up to my newsletter – I only send out emails when I release a new pattern or am having a sale, so usually, you’ll only hear from me about once a month.
