Description:

I'm so enthralled with Cookie A.'s sock patterns that I thought a swap was in order. :-)

You'll have 1 partner and will send them a sock pattern (a PURCHASED pattern, NO freebies from the net, please!) from Cookie A. as well as the yarn (Please don't skimp on the yarn! Natural fiber content must be at least 75%.) to knit the socks with. You don't need to include the same yarn as recommended in the pattern but it does need to be the same weight and the yardage must be sufficient to knit the sock pattern. Also, please be sure to choose a yarn that will compliment the pattern. For example, a self patterning or striping yarn might not work well for most of her patterns as the sock design would get lost in the yarn pattern.

We'll have 2 weeks to get the package in the mail. If you already own any of Cookie's patterns please list it in the comments.

That's all there is to it! Fun and easy, right?

Great idea. I have Monkey Socks on the needles right now. Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome in Birches. My first one is done and it was my very first lace sock! Very easy and beautiful. Fits perfectly. Is it OK if the pattern comes from the internet?

staygio911 02/ 6/2008 #

I have none of her patterns yet but much say I am constantly pulled to them. So i love the excuse to actually make one

kerryknits 02/ 6/2008 #

Dawneca - I've updated the description to note that the pattern must be one of the patterns she offers for sale and not one of the freebies online. I hope this works for you but I will totally understand if you decide to drop. I hope you'll be able to stay and swap with us though. :-)

staygio911 - This is exactly the push I need to get me to knit something of hers too. :-)

kerryknits 02/ 6/2008 #

For my partner - I do have the Marilinda and Twisted Flower patterns in my collection. :-)

staygio911 02/ 6/2008 #

Sounds like a plan to me as long as they are download able.

Dawneca 02/ 6/2008 #

I will stay. I would like to ask, though, that the coordinator please check out newbies. I have been burned twice in the past few months, and this swap will be fairly pricey. will it be OK Can I assume it's OK to send yarn and patterns directly from an online site rather than sent to me then I send on to my partner? Thanks!

kerryknits 02/ 6/2008 #

Dawneca - I will absolutely check out any and all newbies entering the swap. I realize this will be a pricey swap and I don't want any flakers. I'll do my absolute best to be vigilant in that respect. Yes, it would be just fine to have the pattern and yarn sent directly from the store you purchase them from. That's most likely what I'll do too. :-)

kerryknits 02/ 6/2008 #

staygio911 - If you purchase the patterns from Cookie herself they are downloadable.

Shash 02/ 6/2008 #

I don't know Cookie A.--what are the patterns like??

beaglemom 02/ 7/2008 #

I don't have any of her patterns, but checked them out and they look fantastic! Looking forward to this swap!

kerryknits 02/ 7/2008 #

Shash - You can check out her patterns here:

http://www.cookiea.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1

You can purchase them as a download directly from her or click on the tab for a list of retailers. :-)

kgeslab 02/ 7/2008 #

I only see 11 patterns. Does she have more?

Dawneca 02/ 7/2008 #

Perfect. Thanks, Kerryknits. Cookie A's patterns are really well written. I couldn't believe how easy the Monkey sock was! And perfectly fitted and gorgeous. This will be big fun.

shelbyknits 02/ 7/2008 #

Sounds like fun! Count me in! I have 3 Cookie A patterns: Millicient, Flicker and Twisted Flower.

kerryknits 02/ 7/2008 #

kgeslab - I believe the 11 are the only ones she has for sale. She does have others on the web that are free but we won't be swapping those here. Hope this helps! :-)

beaglemom 02/ 8/2008 #

I went back and checked and I do have 2 patterns of hers - Mungus and Thelonious. Please disregard my other post! I am glad that I checked! Can't wait to do this swap!

kgeslab 02/ 8/2008 #

I have Thelonious and Mingus.

kerryknits 02/ 8/2008 #

I already know which pattern I'll be sending to my partner (providing they don't already have it, so far I'm safe) and I can't wait!

luv2playsax 02/ 9/2008 #

Ive just completed my first swap, and am looking for another one to join. Im not yet rated, but I do have a completed profile...may I join?? L

Shash 02/ 9/2008 #

Oh my goodness, count me in!! I'm a (new) sock junkie and her patterns are gorgeous!

staygio911 02/ 9/2008 #

I have none of the for sale patterns but have been so tempted to get one and this gives me the ability to do so with out telling my husband I bought more yarn or knitting junk as he calls it

Jensenaddict 02/10/2008 #

I just finished my fourth pair of Monkeys (an angel pair), and will be casting on Twisted Flower for my sock it to me twice sock pal soon. I have knitted Hedera, Baudelaire, Potomatus and Mona, and intend to knit Titania's Revenge for myself when I have time. Are there any other good solid coloured sock yarn besides Louet Gems? I finished the Monkeys using Jaeger baby merino 4 ply and it came out lovely.

kerryknits 02/10/2008 #

luv2playsax - Welcome aboard! I'm happy you've decided to join us. :-)

Jensenaddict - I'm thinking of doind a pair in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock. Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids would be another great choice. And the Opal uni Solids too. There's also lots of indie dyers that have somewhat solid shades that would be awesome. Check out etsy.com for some great choices. :-)

staygio911 02/12/2008 #

I love lornas laces by that stuff just for the heck of it.... I think most of there yarn would work. Alot of indy dyers have some great semi solids.

sauvageblue 02/17/2008 #

I can't say I have any patterns of her patterns even though I can say I would love any one.

staygio911 02/18/2008 #

Man I am looking at her patterns now and they are so great I can't wait for and excuse to do you... I love the twisted flower

lady1380 02/19/2008 #

I am a newbie to swap-bot, but I've done some unofficial swaps with online friends in the past, and I'm really looking forward to this. I promise, absolutely no flaking! I love Cookie's patterns and I haven't gotten any yet, so I'll hold off for a little bit! : )

Zenifer 02/26/2008 #

I currently have the MARLINDA pattern but no others. Thanks!

CrystalStitches 02/29/2008 #

I have Twisted Flower and German Stocking. I would love to have Marilinda.

kerryknits 03/ 4/2008 #

CrystalStitches - Your package was picked up by the mailman today. I think you're in for a real treat. You'll have to let me know what you think as soon as it arrives. I can't wait! I'm so excited for you to get it! :-)

Shash 03/ 6/2008 #

I just purchased a Cookie A. sock pattern from her website on the internet, but then I read in the swap description 'no freebies from the net'. Does that mean I can't use the one I just purchased??

Shash 03/ 6/2008 #

I should've said purchased it, downloaded it and then printed it at home. Is this pattern okay to use??

kerryknits 03/ 6/2008 #

Shash - You can absolutely use it! :-)

staygio911 03/ 7/2008 #

ok not liking this swap i think i bought one of each pattern

kerryknits 03/ 7/2008 #

staygio911 - LOL They certainly are hard to resist aren't they?

staygio911 03/ 9/2008 #

Guys her new patterns drop the end of march so I think we will have to re do this swap in April

kerryknits 03/ 9/2008 #

I'm definitely up for another! I didn't realize she had new patterns coming out so soon. I'll set up the swap within the next few days. Keep your eyes open if you want to join! :-)

kerryknits 03/ 9/2008 #

OMG!!! I just saw the new patterns!!! So, here is the link for the new swap...
