I feel lucky…

And I am! I’ve won two contests in the past week, and am now the happy owner of two new sock patterns. The first is Zoom Zoom, by Samantha Roshak at KnitQuest.


The other is Cotty, by Carrie Sullivan at IrishgirlieKnits.

These both look like fun knits. I have Socks that Rock Mediumweight in Alley-Oop, and I think that will work for Cotty. I’ll have to buy (twist my arm) fingering weight yarn for Zoom Zoom. but I’ll probably wait for the market at Sock Summit.

Thank you, Sam and Carrie, for the patterns, and for permission to use your pictures, too!

For someone who wasn’t a sock knitter, isn’t it funny that I have sock patterns, sock yarn, and am going to Sock Summit in August? Never say never!

  1. Congrats!! I can’t get the zoom, zoom, zoom commercial out of my head whenever I see Sam’s pattern!

    Alley Oop will be great for this!! Can’t wait for the KAL to start!

    Those socks look fabulous! Congratulations on winning the patterns. I had a chuckle at your “For someone who wasn’t a sock knitter…” comment. A few years ago my partner said she would be interested in learning how to knit…So I taught myself how, so I could teach her….She didn’t take it up….but I knit most nights now!

  3. Check you out! Fingering weight yarn for the Zoom Zoom pattern!! 🙂

    I can’t wait for the Cotty KAL to start!!

    Congrats on your winnings!! Very cool!

  4. They’re both lovely – lucky you!

  5. I think you should play the lottery! You’re on a winning streak.

  6. Congratulations!

    It’s sock season! The Summer of Socks starts this weekend.

  7. Oooh, lucky. I really like Zoom Zoom. I might have to investigate it for myself!

  8. So you don’t have any medium weight STR leftovers to make blocks with? All of those socks that you’ve knit and no leftovers? Wow! I always have leftovers, I must be doing something wrong. 😉

    I think Larissa would take your blocks.

  9. I am so happy for you. The sock patterns look delightful and who could ask for anything more than Sock Summit. What a fortunate woman you are.

  10. Congrats! I love Zoom Zoom.

  11. Congrats! They both look like great patterns. I also like the little toy car in the photo too, although I’d want a real one…

  12. Great sock patterns! I never thought I’d knit socks either but I think they might be my favorite things to knit. 🙂

  13. Congrats – what great patterns! Can’t wait to see how yours turn out…

  14. Aren’t you a lucky girl?! Love both of those patterns!
    I agree with you… ‘the way of the sock’ is a force irresistable!
