Happy Summer Knitty Friends!

Hi Everyone!
Hope ya'll are having a FABULOUS summer! It's great here, but HOT, HOT, HOT, but that's the South for ya!
I've not forgotten everyone one, I've a few designs in the works, so to speak. And, as everyone knows by now, I LOVE to design socks for my husband, Lonnie…BUT, he's found a design that is his FAVE and those are the only ones he wants me to knit! The pattern is a bit of a 'recipe' that enables to ease of putting a toe up sock on, and taking it off; additionally, it addresses the fact that sometimes his socks 'fall' down his leg. All that to say, I will be knitting a pair of socks for him soon and will share "Lonnie's favorite socks" recipe with everyone.
Have a blessed summer!
Happy Knitting and God Bless!!

RUN, RUN to the Yarn Zone!

 photo YZ_web_banner_zps05536a4a.jpg
I just discovered the FANTASTIC Yarn Zone online yarn shop and had to share with my knitty friends who are kind enough to stop by my design site. 
The Yarn Zone has lavish yarns with OUTSTANDING prices. For example, right now, SWTC Tofutsies is being sold for $5.00 a skein! The sale is scrolling on Yarn Zone's home page right now!!! In addition to the incredible sale of my FAVORITE SOCK YARN, the Yarn Zone also has other incredible sales. Another example is the sale of bags of SWTC Karaoke yarn for $30.00!
 To find these sales look at the top left button on Yarn Zone's home page and click on the button that reads BLOWOUT DEALS and you will be directed to the 'blowout deals' such as bags of yarn at incredible prices! 
 BUT, dear friends there is a caveat, a favor that I would like to ask of each of you, please. When you make a purchase, PLEASE mention that I sent you as you are checking out; something like, 
"Becka sent me!"
You see, I am in the process of convincing a few friends that the fabulous knitters that honor me by visiting my design site are many and kind enough to mention my name AND....
The FIRST 20 to make a purchase and mention "Becka Sent Me" in the checkout process will receive a gift with purchase!!!

INK Socks for Women


INK Socks
for women

(click to enlarge)

designed by Rebecca Mercier

All rights reserved for personal, nonprofit use. 

I designed and knit these socks for my wonderful tattoo artist, Kim Reed. Please check out her site here Milk Made Art and if you are in Savannah, GA. I HIGHLY recommend that you allow her to work her magic on you or purchase some of her art, both are equally amazing! She can be found Savannah's premiere art gallery and tattoo shop, The Butcher

These socks are knit using toe up construction with an afterthought heel.
Stranding technique is used for the word INK on the cuff, it appears on the front and the back of the sock!
I found an outstanding video that helps with locking the floats that happen with this design, the video is found  
here, please watch it, it's very helpful!

The INK Socks pattern is found here in pdf format.
Have fun, show the world that you are proud of your INK!
