Last summer, I held the Summer of Color contest, which produced some very cool sock patterns using my Simply Sock Yarn Solids line. One of those was the Flock Sock pattern (which is free!) designed by Amy Rutter, and she just sent me a Flock Sock to display in the store. Isn't this the cutest sock you've ever seen?! Seriously, I can't remember seeing a more adorable adult sock.
If you want to knit this one yourself, all the details are here and you can also download the pattern for free. Amy was able to knit this one sock with the leftover from the original pattern, so really she got three socks out of the yardage she specified in the pattern. So at least you know you have the yarn for a back-up sock, should one get eaten or wrecked in some way.
I probably looked pretty dorky dancing around the store by myself yesterday, holding this sock on a mannequin foot, singing a little tune about how cute it was. But I figure that non-knitters passing by already think the idea of a sock yarn store is nuts, so who really cares, amiright?
