Kristen TenDyke - Petal Socks

  Petal Socks  
  I'm finally finished with tech editing two sock books. The second book was by a well known sock designer who has an absolutely fabulous way of writing her sock patterns to use charts.

I love tech editing. With most patterns, I need to visualize the stiches as if they are being knit, so it feels as if I actually went through the process of knitting the piece. It's a fabulous learning technique for me because all I need to do is read through (and visualize, of course) the pattern.

So, I absolutely LOVE when I come across a designer who has ingenius techniques and methods in their designs. I learn so much. From what I've learned, these Petal Socks were born.

And take a look at that yarn! Isn't it beautiful? I think so. It's CEY's Alpaca Sox Kettle Dyes—I LOVE IT!
