Offer: Handknit socks

oyceter wrote in con_or_bust
Item Name & Description: One pair of handknit socks, your pick of pattern.

I have the following two yarns available:
  • Blue Moon Fiber Arts light weight Pink Granite (pic)

  • Blue Moon Fiber Arts medium weight Bella Coola (pic)


The Bella Coola was originally part of the 2007 Rockin' Sock Club and goes with the Salish Sea Socks pattern, although you're free to switch patterns if you'd like!

I'm also willing to go with your choice of yarn or with a pattern I don't own and need to buy for extra auction payment equaling the price of the yarn or pattern.

You can check out some socks I've made. (I have all those patterns too, if you want me to make another pair.)

I'm also on Ravelry if you want to check out other knitted stuff I've done.

I am totally open for suggestions about what you want and can pick a pattern together with you if you'd like, since the hand-dyed yarns don't always work well with all patterns.

In case people want suggestions, here are some patterns I like:
Clandestine
Queen of Cups
Leyburn
Black Rose socks
Mad Color Weave
Marigold
Magic Mirror
Zokni
... and lots more!

ETA: or the Skew sock, just because that is the most awesome construction I've seen in a while!

Starting Bid: $15

Notes: Delivery six months after the bidder has decided on a pattern. I'll pay for shipping worldwide.
