In the Gloaming

These socks were not in the plan I made at the start of the year, but I’m so glad that things turned out this way! A shawl I’m working on is just taking me way too long to knit, so I decided to push the release back a bit and come up with a quick pattern I could release in the meantime.

Trainer socks are all the best bits of a sock (toes and heels) without the boring bits (knitting the leg forever) and I may be a convert! I live in trainer socks as soon as it starts to get warm here so I don’t know why it has never occurred to me to knit my own before!

I realise that trainer socks aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, so the pattern comes with guidance on how you can knit it with a longer leg. As with my other socks, the pattern has flexible length fitting so everyone can get the perfect fit!

You can get 25% off Gloaming with the code DuskSale until 11.59 pm (UTC) on the 18th of June 2024. The pattern is also on LoveCrafts and Etsy!

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, or come join me on Patreon for 50% off new releases and to find out what I’m working on for the next few of months!

If you’d like an exclusive 40% discount on future releases sign up for 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.
