The designer challenge was any pattern by Rose Hiver. I chose Katniss, a pattern inspired by the heroine of The Hunger Games books. Katniss always wears her hair in a braid and this pattern features a braided cable on the front and back. It also has a great ribbed gusset that I really enjoyed doing.
Pattern: Katniss by Rose Hiver
Yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan Sock, color Barn Door
Now I'm getting settled in for Hurricane Sandy. I've been to the store and stocked up on food that I can prepare without needing to use the oven. The generator is out and checked, and gas has been purchased for it. Hopefully we won't need it, but where I live if the power goes out for weather related reasons, it's out for at least 3 days. The only thing left to do now is knit! If you're on the east coast too, I hope you're all settled in too and that you'll be safe!
