A Beautiful Necessity

A Beautiful Necessity

Designed by Anna Zilboorg I think of this as a prayer rug sock--toes always heading for the holy city.  The construction of this sock makes a "freesole" you can remove all or any part of it and replace it as the necessity arises.  This is a useful technique for museum quality socks that will be worn with pride and pleasure. Colorways shown: It's Not All About Me Brown (MC)...

Ada Lovelace

Ada Lovelace

Designed by:  Star Athena These steampunk-inspired convertible socks are named after a real-life character in "The Difference Engine" by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling.  Daughter of poet Lord Byron, Ada Lovelace was a writer and math wizard who contributed to Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine.  She is credited with writing the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine, and is often regarded as the...

All of 'er Buttons Socks

All of 'er Buttons Socks

Designed by: Lorilee Beltman. These plain-in-front, sexy-in-the-back socks borrow their appeal from seamed silk stockings. Shfiting the gusset to the back of the foot forms a protuberance where theheel actually protrudes. Worked toe up, the pyramid shaped gusset terminates at the achilles, from whence the stock is worked back and forth to the cuff. Sewn-on buttons finish the look. Since the pattern is interesting all the way down to the sole, these socks look great worn with clogs. Colorway...

Blunnie Socks

Blunnie Socks

Designed by:   Stephen Houghton Growing up, I remember ads for Blundstones, the Australian slip-on hiking boots in the back of my skateboard magazines.  At the time, I didn't knit and the only boots I was interested in were Doc Martens.  Fast-forward twenty or so years:  I've traded wheels on suburban Philadelphia streets for knitting needles in the verdant Pacific Northwest.  On the good authority of a certain Canadian Harlot with whom I share the first five...

Brioche Sock

Brioche Sock

Designed by JC Briar Brioche stitch patterns make some of the most stretchy, cushy, and comfy fabrics around—perfect for socks to wear around the house on a lazy Sunday morning! These Brioche Socks, worked in a simple two-color brioche rib, are reversible: the color that adorns the knit ribs on the “outside” glows from the purl furrows on the “inside.” Colorway shown: Jewel of the Nile & Torridon Materials: 2 skeins Blue Moon Fiber Arts® Socks that Rock® mediumweight, in...

Buggin' Out

Buggin' Out

Designed by Stephen Houghton What are little boys made of?  There are no frogs, snails or puppy-dogs' tails in this ribbed sock.  However, your feet will be snug as a bug with eight legged spiders crawling down the outside of the leg and across the instep.  Afraid of insects?  Turn the sock inside-out for a handsome geometric pattern--it's reversible.

Candied Cufflet Comfort

Candied Cufflet Comfort

Designed by:  Clara Parkes Tina's bright holiday colorway immediate brought to mind a great big, old-fashioned candy cane like the ones you can still get from Hammond's Candies in Colorado. Not the peppermit ones, mind you, but the mouth-puckeringly delicious cherry flavor. I set about translating this impression into stitches and quickly settled on cables. Whatever motif I used, I knew it needed to be small and quiet so that the colors could take center stage. I settled ona ...

Canopy Socks

Canopy Socks

Designed by:   Samantha Roshak Imagine hiking through an old forest on a warm fall day.  Can you see the ocean of trees rising to the sky, spreading their leaves to soak in the sun?  Now look down.  Try as they might the trees cannot absorb all of the light; some of the rays get through to splash their golden light across the ground.  I'm from Oregon so the forest feels like home to me.  It is soothing, inspiring, and peaceful - all feelings I associate with...

Cascadia

Cascadia

Designed by Sivia Harding Everything smokes in this toe up sock.  Textured peaks, create knitted mountain ranges with a lovely valley between them.  Inspired by the Cascade Mountain range, a part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, a fierce ring of volcanic mountains around the Pacific.  Add in the cabled back rising in smoke-like ribbons and the very dragon snout like toe and Watch out!  Where there's smoke, there's FIRE.

Cedar Creek

Cedar Creek

Designed by Kaci Kyler Hays The road to Blue Moon follows a lovely creek that gradually climbs into the coast range. There are trees and wildlife everywhere. Wonderful majestic cedars, firs, and even a few redwoods. This is the inspiration for Kaci's Cedar Creek socks, columns of cedars along a meandering creek. Oregon is also home to many interesting rock specimens. So when you are knitting these, if you hear the wind blowing through the treetops and rain against the window, think of us!...

Checkerboard Socks

Checkerboard Socks

Designed by:  Nancy Bush I like to make socks with interesting textures and so chose this small square design from an Estonian pattern book to give a geometric pattern which would also complement the changing colors in the yarn.  I chose 2/2 ribbing for the back of the leg, to aid in the fit of the sock.  I chose to use a Round or French toe shaping, as they are two of my favorite techniques for classic sock construction.   Colorway:  Rumplestiltskein Materials: 1...

Cloning Anemone Rib

Cloning Anemone Rib

Designed by Team Blue Moon If you love a springy, cushy sock, you're going to love this one. The Cloning Anemone Rib becomes second nature after you've worked a few pattern repeats. The inspiration comes from tidepools where sea anemones literally clone themselves, creating a fabric of babies which covers rocks like, well, rock-socks. Colorway shown: Tidepooling M aterials: 1 skein Blue Moon Fiber Arts® Socks that Rock® lightweight US size 1.5 (2.5mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge Stitch...

Distelfink

Dusty Corners

Dusty Corners

Designed by Linda Welch Dusty Corners is how I usually describe my housework-I'd rather knit than clean!  But, Dusty Corners is really an aid station on the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run that takes place in my backyard every summer.  What started out as a 100-mile horse race over the Sierra turned into a footrace one year when one of the horses went lame.  His rider jumped off and ran to the finish line!  To get to Dusty Corners, the runners have to wind their...

EZ's Moccasin Socks with Twisted-Stitch Motifs

EZ's Moccasin Socks with Twisted-Stitch Motifs

Designed by Meg Swansen The incentive for this Elizabeth Zimmermann design was to obviate constant sock-mending.  When you strengthen the toes and heels of socks, the wearer often bores holes just before or after the strengthening.  EZ wrote a very nice chapter on this subject for the month of November in Knitter's Almanac.  Since the instep is usually free of holes, it is worked to the toe, then stitches are knitted up around the instep.  The bottom of the foot is a...

Flabella

Flabella

Designed by Christina Bain It happened to be raining the day I started knitting this sock.  Drip, drip, drop, drip.  I love the way the bobbles fall away from the fans in almost random lines like rivulets of rain running down a window pane.  As I finished this sock, I started looking for a name for it and stumbled onto the word flabellum.  It is basically an old ceremonial fan for shooing the bugs off the dead.  It is often used to name very pretty things other than...

Fraggle Squiggle Socks

Designed by JC Briar Anything but straight-laced, these energetic socks will make you reach for your dancing shoes!  Lace with squiggly decreases takes center stage, while columns of bubbles (champagne, anyone ?)  percolate from the tips of the toes to the tops of the cuffs. Colorway shown: Pepe La Plume Materials: 1 skein Blue Moon Fiber Arts® Socks that Rock® lightweight US size 1 (2.25mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge Stitch markers, including 2 clip-on markers Tapestry needle note:...
