This pattern is the first of a collection which will be published in an upcoming sock book. For once, the pattern won’t be published as soon as the test is Finished. The standalone pattern itself will be published upon 6 months after the book publication date. In the meantime, for those of you who qualify, I’ll send you the finished polished pattern through email, then gift it to you when it’ll be available.

Test-knitting status notices

Please let me know when you’ve reached these stages of test-knitting:
