I’ve been sitting on this awesome news for MORE THAN A YEAR, guys. A year! That’s like . . . seven dog years. Fifteen cat years. Approximately 4mm of a tree’s trunk diameter. Almost 526 THOUSAND minutes. Like I say, it’s a long time.
A long time to keep a secret.

Inspired by photos from patterns of the past (most of which I probably wouldn’t have given a second glance, but these two saw a hint of something good), they went to many different illustrious designers and asked for modern interpretations. I’m pretty tickled that I was asked to contribute.
The Sock Hop Sweater and Socks set is my design:
And Caro and Stitchy combined it with 40+ other awesome patterns (many of which I can’t wait to make) and created such a killer book.
The patterns are listed separately: Go queue them! Go fave them! See them, plus all the other patterns, on Ravelry.
