starstitchI found this beautiful new-to-me stitch pattern on Pinterest called “Star Stitch” but it looks more like flowers to me.  It’s a perfect partner for this sunny hand painted yarn to create a field of flowers on my new sock so I can dream of spring while it is dismally cold and grey outside.

I’ll probably write up the pattern to share when I’m done with the socks because it takes a little bit of tweaking to modify for socks, especially the lower foot where you need an extra stitch for symmetry.  If you’re interested in the basic stitch pattern you can find it on theweeklystitch.com.  What is strange to me, is that this stitch isn’t in any of my stitch dictionaries.  Now, I don’t have a ton of them, but you’d think it would be in at least one of them.  And, another of my favorite stitch patterns, the bear track stitch, is also not included.  Thank goodness for the internet!  My favorite place for browsing stitch pattern is knittingfool.com.  What is your favorite stitch dictionary?  I’ve been eyeballing the Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting Patterns set.  I wonder if the Star Stitch or Bear Track Stitch are included in her set?

dictionariesIn other news, I’ve been busy dyeing yarns for my Etsy shop.  Here’s a few of the new colorways available:

  1. I love it! It is great with your yarn. I have seen that stitch before, but I think that it was pinterest too… The new yarn is beautiful, I have been trying to decide, you make it hard for me to choose!!! And there’s blue sky heading your way, we have had two bright sunny days in a row! And today is supposed to make it over 35℉! Still buried under SNOW…
