New Pattern: Pomeroy Socks

I've got one last pattern for October, just published today! My Pomeroy socks are one of five designs in the new Anzula Socks booklet:

Quick and easy to knit, Pomeroy offers an engaging alternative to “plain vanilla” stockinette socks. The socks are worked top down on double-pointed needles and feature knit-purl textures on the cuff followed by a wide rib. 

I designed these socks with newer sock knitters in mind. They're more challenging than stockinette but not overwhelming. And the stitch patterns are given in written form—there are no charts to follow.

The sample pair are knit in the lovely Heidi colorway of Anzula Squishy, a fingering weight blend of merino, cashmere goat, and nylon. This was my first time knitting with Squishy and I was very pleased with its soft hand and excellent stitch definition. It wasn't easy to put these socks in the mail and send them away!

Other pattern news:
