Hunter socks

Lovely  socks, no?

They’re called Conferva Villosa Socks and you’ll find them in The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet Volume 111, by Hunter Hammersen, just released today. The socks are worked in Finch/Carrie’s Yellow and their undulating stitch pattern was inspired, as were the other projects in the book, by a marine illustration like¬† the one below. The plant illustrated so gently here is conferva and is described as a threadlike, fresh water, green algae.


The rhythmic-texture stitch used in thee hat below reminds me of the bumpy outside of large conch shells. You know the ones I mean? Though it’s called Conferva Villosa Hat. It’s knitted in Lark/Split Pea, the perfect conferva color.

And here’s the cover with another pair of pretty socks. For more information on the book and on the pre-order special, go here.

    Hi there! Just curious, is there a way to be notified when yarns are back in stock? I’m thinking in particular of sparrow sans :)

    We’ll probably shoot out an e-letter when Sans is back in. Sadly, not until August.
