Last month Mara Catherine Bryner released yet another fabulous pattern called Perle Cottage Socks. In fact this summer she has released a whopping total of three sock patterns (and that’s not even counting Rose City Rollers Littles, a children’s edition of her 2015 pattern Rose City Rollers)!
Having knit all of Mara’s previous patterns, I was pretty psyched when I saw the Perle Cottage Socks on her Instagram account @orangeknits. Still, I had way too many projects going and I swore to myself I would abstain from starting this project for a while. I broke that promise.
For my Perle Cottage socks I pulled from my stash this “OOAK” colorway by Republic of Wool. Hard to believe it’s one of a kind, isn’t it? By the way, if you didn’t already know, Michele of Republic of Wool is a dyeing genius.
Mara included a couple of options for the cuff of this sock. I selected the simple single roll rather than multiple rolls to better highlight the yarn and all those beautiful slipped stitches.
This final pic was taken outside and showcases the orange in the yarn. Orange remains one of my favorite colors, so to me this pic is the best.
Perhaps Mara will now hold off for a while so that I can get caught up on all my other projects–but I have a feeling she won’t. Mara is tirelessly creative.
