Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.

[Stanley Horowitz]


Engravings by M.C. Escher inspired the pattern for the October sock. I’ve developed other variations in this design in the decade since I designed this sock and have worked it in other colors. Imagine what it would look like if you selected a variegated yarn of autumn colors for the dark leaves.

I have reserved October for finishing the eBook that will include this pattern. By the end of the month, I intend to have it in the form that can be sent to the company that does production and packaging.

I also plan to devote my October posts mostly to knitting. There is already a chill in the morning air — it is time to knit a new pair of socks for the winter. Starting October 1, I’ll post daily workshop notes that will give you detailed instructions for knitting a sock from start to finish.
