Introducing Magpielly Solid Sock Club

Get your sine on

Hello knitters! Today I'd love to share some very exciting news with you:

Elly Doyle, the organiser of the club and designer extraordinaire
, is bringing you a Solid Coloured Sock Club! I am thrilled to be part of it and I am in great company too, together with Elly herself and Rachel Coopey, the genius behind The Knitted Sock Society and Coop Knits Socks!

This year, Elly proposed a themed club with designs being inspired by maths: be it algebra, geometry or analysis. I thought the task was rather interesting to work on, if not a fun attempt to try to incorporate some maths inspired elements into a sock design.
After much exploration, I have come up with a sock pattern that is based on a trigonometric function. Interwoven sine and cosine waves to be precise: the braided waves translated into a rather pretty cable pattern that flows from the cuff and runs along the leg and foot of the sock, curtailing towards the toe.

The club is open for sign-ups until tomorrow February 17 *

Sign up on Magpielly.co.uk

* it was originally planned to finish sign ups two weeks ago, but Elly had recently moved house (and an island) with all the excitement of being off line 
for a few weeks, hence the prolonged sign up date.
