Every knitter probably knows this feeling: You have the perfect yarn, you know the type of project you want to make, you know the recipient and have a deadline. However….
YOU CANNOT FIND A PATTERN
This is the situation I find myself in. I have two skeins of Socks that Rock mediumweight in Brick which are going to be made into my Dad’s Christmas socks. I can’t figure out a pattern that I want to knit.
I have scoured Ravelry. Searched through FreePatternCentral. Dug around on Patternfish. Dove into my personal pattern stash. All with no results. I did want to knit Firestarter, but this was immediately rejected by everyone else in my family.
Compound this with the fact that Dude has size 13 feet and I have to start soon…
My finalists can be seen here on Ravelry. I’m thinking about one of Anne Hanson’s patterns, since I enjoyed knitting the Marie Antoinettes so much.
Any ideas out there?
