I just launched my 15th self-published knitting pattern. I do like to knit and design socks. These are called Knight's Move, because the chart looks like a series of L-shapes, like the path the knight takes across the chess board. I originally designed these for my Dad. There are so many pretty sock patterns aimed at women, and all the men's socks seem to be either plain stocking stitch or plain ribbing. I know men wouldn't want to wear lacy socks, but as a knitter there are only so many plain vanilla socks I want to make in neutral colours. These are fun to knit and suitably masculine for Dad to wear.
I love to knit, to design patterns and to talk about knitting!
