YarnZone

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.
