Several years ago Martha Stewart tweeted about how often her horses needed new shoes and I jokingly tweeted back to her that I didn’t see that as a problem because who doesn’t love new shoes, right? Well, she replied to my tweet and since then I joke that she and I are besties and our celebrity couple name is Lartha.
Maybe someday I will get to meet Martha in person and can give her a pair of Lartha Socks that I knitted just for her.
Lartha is a cuff down sock with an easy to knit lace and cable repeat that is given in both written and charted instructions. A modified modified short row heel adds a bit of interest while being simple to knit. These socks look great in both variegated and solid yarns.
The sample in the photos was knitted using Miss Babs Yummy 2 Ply in a one of a kind Babette. If you would like to use a similar colorwayPerfectly Wreckless or Soul Food would be great choices. Seriously though, any of the colorways that Miss Babs dyes would be fantastic with this pattern!
Lartha is introductory priced on Ravelry at $4.50 until June 15

I'm so, so excited that the Miss Babs Knitting Tour pattern has been added to Ravelry. This was one of the most fun patterns that I have worked on and the yarn is fantastic! I'm really trying not to give anything away so I'm not saying much right now. If you would like to check it out and see what it is along with pictures click on this link: Miss Babs Knitting Tour
If you weren't in the tour the pattern will be available for purchase sometime in December.
