The Moodna Creek Socks are the first in a new series called the Hometown Collection. I’ve lived in four different places in my life for a number of years that had the most impact for me. I spent the first part of my life in New York, just a few hours from New York City, I was born in the Bay Area and spent a few years living there, some of my favorite times were living at the Jersey Shore where I finished high school and had some of the most memorable moments, and lastly I’ve spent most of my life in Lexington, Kentucky far from family. There are 12 accessories total 3 for each location. All 4 places I will always consider Home.

The Moodna Creek ran through my backyard. I’m serious - it literally went through my yard. I fished, swam, waded, tried to skip rocks into, and hiked into the woods along this creek. It was a huge part of my life. The Moodna Creek runs from Salisbury Mills, NY, then past our old home and for us it ended in a spillway at the edge of the property before it continued up and out into the Hudson River.

I interpreted it as a winding cable that spills into a picot hem It features three sizes, a German short row heel, an a picot hem. Unlike my previous patterns this is a toe up only pattern and as of right now does not feature cuff down instructions, but it will in the coming weeks and I will update the price to reflect that.

I have included video links in the pattern to my favorite resources for cast ons, German short row and the picot hem to help with these techniques.

There are three sizes, women’s small, medium, and woman’s large/men’s medium. These sizes are for the circumference of your ankle - not your shoe size.

Woman’s Small: 7-9 inches around ankle.
Woman’s Medium: 7.5-10 inches around ankle.
Women’s Large/Men’s Medium: 8-12 inches around ankle

There are written and charted instructions included with the pattern.
