Always in My Heart

I've published the pattern with gauge, yarn and a special coupon code to on Ravelry. You can also buy using this link:

On February 1, 2015 the complete pattern will be published and you will receive an update to download the pattern. On that day the KAL begins as well.
The reason I've pre-published this is so people can get their yarn, make sure they get gauge and have needles ready for the 1st.

In loving memory of Frederick Copeland Sr. June 7, 1944-December 22, 2010

I know some of you are directed here because of the email from YarnZone and I just wanted to say Hi and Welcome!
I've designed for SWTC for a few years and also am one of the voices you hear from via email when there are questions on patterns-especially the Origami Heel from the Socks A La Carte series.
One of my all time favorite sock yarn has been Tofutsies. The colors are perfect for the first pattern in this series-Always in my Heart. As explained in an earlier post, it is very near and dear to me as I designed it after my father passed away. I looked online to see the different awareness ribbons for cancers and there are a lot! Thankfully, Tofutsies comes in most of those colors. If your loved one has a multiple diagnosis as my dad did, I'm sure you can find a color to honor them.
Specs for the sock:
Toe up with lace and cables. 9.5 sts/12 rows to the inch on US #1. The pattern link will be available this weekend here and via Ravelry. In working with Kitrina, there will be a coupon code included in the pattern for YarnZone.

Great News!

Great news! The creativity has begun to flow and I’ve been designing again!  I will be releasing 6 new patterns bi-monthly beginning February 1, 2015.

The patterns are all accessories, and there are pieces that are knitted, crocheted and even one that is a combination of the two! You will have the option to purchase patterns either individually or as the set. I hope that this fabulous collection will inspire.... and I will be standing by to encourage and answer questions.

I am also partnering with All of the yarns used to design the patterns are either SWTC or YarnZone yarns, and range from fingering weight to worsted. There will be a special promo code included with each pattern for you to use at checkout on the YarnZone website.

All patterns designed are special to me, but the very first one is extraordinarily so.
I designed these socks when my father passed away in 2010 using Tofutsies from SWTC. Since he was a cancer survivor, all proceeds from this pattern sale only will be donated to the American Cancer Society (after PayPal gets their cut). If you have anyone that you want this donated in their name, PLEASE message me or leave it on my blog thread. I will be doing a special post with the names that are provided to me.

If participants want a KAL/CAL, I am more than happy to have threads started on Ravelry or answer any questions asked on my blog. I will be moderating both and will be available to assist in any way.

I’m very excited and can’t wait to see all of the finished projects. 

On January 15, 2015 I will be posting the pattern link here and on Ravelry, pre-purchasing the Always in My Heart pattern will ensure you have all supplies necessary to start this incredible sock on February 1st. 

I look forward to creating with you in the new year.
