Signal Hill

As I have been slowly attempting to get back into a routine of normalcy (and I say slowly, because the best intentions aren't always enough) my old blog features will come back, one that has been requested is pattern Thursday. With the recent release of an exciting new pattern in my yarn it seemed like the perfect time to brush myself off and hop back up on the horse.

Meet Signal Hill by Rayna Curtis Fegan of First Light Handcrafts. A perfectly cabled and thoughtfully designed sock pattern for Kilcoursie DK in Rosseau Pumpkin. Some thoughts from the designer:

If you have ever been on Signal Hill on a winter’s day (or even a chilly autumn one for that matter), you probably wished for some nice, cozy socks to keep your feet warm. These DK weight socks fit the bill and the winding cabling reminds me of the sign there that points to cities all over the globe. This lovely cabled sock is knit in DK weight yarn and is a quick knit; it’s even quicker if you cable without a needle.

A perfect fit for what we do here at Georgian Bay Fibre Co. I love how Rayna draws inspiration from her home that she longs for from her Toronto condo. Signal Hill is one of her favourite spots in her native Newfoundland and apparently it can get extra cold there, a perfect fit for a heavier weight sock. This sock can be comfortably knit in a women's size from one skein of Kilcoursie DK, making it a perfect project and the cables keeping things interesting and moving along quickly.
