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

Several years ago Martha Stewart tweeted about how often her horses needed new shoes and I jokingly tweeted back to her that I didn’t see that as a problem because who doesn’t love new shoes, right? Well, she replied to my tweet and since then I joke that she and I are besties and our celebrity couple name is Lartha.

Maybe someday I will get to meet Martha in person and can give her a pair of Lartha Socks that I knitted just for her.

Lartha is a cuff down sock with an easy to knit lace and cable repeat that is given in both written and charted instructions. A modified short row heel adds a bit of interest while being simple to knit. These socks look great in both variegated and solid yarns.

The sample in the photos was knitted using Miss Babs Yummy 2 Ply in a one of a kind Babette. If you would like to use a similar colorway Perfectly Wreckless or Soul Food would be great choices. Seriously though, any of the colorways that Miss Babs dyes would be fantastic with this pattern!
