I am The Reluctant Designer: it would not be an understatement to say that I was dragged, kicking and screaming, into the area of pattern design.

That’s not to say that I don’t love inventing things to make - I do it all the time: skirts, dresses, socks. It just feels weird to call myself a “designer”, just because I pick up some needles and yarn, and make something out of them without using a pattern.

I knit profane socks.

I really enjoy color.

I am discovering something: even more fun than designing things is seeing all the beautiful things that people make from my patterns. Thanks to everyone who has made a project - they bring me joy.

All my sock patterns are free, and will remain so. This is because, periodically, people come along and take patters, rewrite them (barely), and then try to sell them. I like to make it hard for those people to sell patterns, by keeping the free version available. And I like that I can count on Ravelers to point out when free patterns are being rewritten and sold, so thank you all.

Since these are free patterns, I offer no pattern support. Zero. None. If you want help, please ask on any forum - there are lots of people out there who love helping others. If you message me asking me to explain, rewrite, resize, or redesign any of my patterns for you, do not expect a reply.
