Our newest sock pattern is available now!
Bijou Socks is a simple and elegant sock pattern that I'm pretty sure is going to become my go-to sock pattern.
One of the definitions of “bijou” is jewel or trinket, small and elegant. That’s how I think of the little stitch pattern in these socks. It’s just a little trinket, but it makes for an elegant pattern.
I love knitting socks that look beautiful, like a jewel, but without having to concentrate and fuss over a complicated stitch pattern or chart. These fit the bill to perfection!
If you look through my designs, you'll notice something of a theme along these lines.
Easy to knit, easy to memorize patterns that zip along...that's my thing!

I'm Robin, the dyer and designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about yarn and knitting, stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
