I’ve got two very definitive characteristics - I knit socks, and I ramble a lot. People are always telling me to get to the point. Last time I was flipping through my stitch dictionaries looking for a good pattern for my newest pair of socks, I ended up marking just about every other design. Finally, after a few hours of browsing, I had to tell myself to get to the point - the point was to pick out a good stitch pattern and get to knitting, not to flip through books all night. It was at that moment that I turned the page and spotted this nifty little pattern, with panels of diagonal lines forming distinct little arrows that all came to a point. “Get to the point, indeed!” I muttered to myself, and a new sock pattern was born.

Socks are worked cuff-down, in the round on double-pointed needles.
