Ropes and Cobblestones
|ROPES AND COBBLESTONES SOCKS|
For the month's of October and November 2013 the pattern will only be available for members of the Six Sox Knitalong Yahoo Group. After that time it will be for sale on Ravelry.com.
This tiered distribution method has become my modus operandi for sock patterns the past few years. Why? Because I get excellent test knitting for every size (free!) from the stable of volunteers on the group who are sock experts. Then the group members get exclusive access to the new pattern for the first two months.

Jonesy was over at the yard yesterday and decided to turn on the ignition switch just to be sure the start battery was OK. Nope. It wasn't. So in addition to the 4 new deep-cycle batteries we've ordered for our house solar system, he just had to buy another regular 12-volt battery for the engine start system. It will be delivered to the yard at 3pm today so he's off to take the old battery out now and get ready to install the new one. I think I'll knit in the A/C here at the hotel.
If you are into textiles - just wait for the next post in a couple of days! We had an adventure that will knock your socks off!
