My beloved 4 year old pug Iggy suddenly lost site in his good eye on Saturday due to retinal detachment. He is scheduled to have cataract surgery on 9/25 to help restore sight to his other eye. To help offset the costs of his surgery, all of my single patterns are 50% off with the exception of Fright Night which is already discounted, no coupon code is needed. Thank you for any support and good thoughts that you can send our way

Bethesda’s Socks were inspired by John Warley’s book: Bethesda’s Child: a compelling story that takes place in Washington DC and centers around the prevention of genetic engineering, a presidential campaign, and a tangled love interest. The simple to knit cables twisting down the sides of each sock represent the complex structure of DNA and the twists and turns that take place in Bethesda’s Child.

These fun socks begin with cuff down construction and the pattern includes both written and charted instructions. The cables are simple enough to knit on your summer road trip, while adding enough zip to the pattern so you won’t get bored along the way. No one wants to hear “Are we there yet?” when you are just leaving the driveway!

Instructions are given for using four double pointed needles, but can easily be converted for using the magic loop method, two circular needles, or your preferred sock knitting method.
