Hi everyone,
I found this to be such a cool idea for a KAL that I've been spending WAY too much time looking at patterns without pictures! I want to pick something that hasn't been "claimed" yet to add to more diversity. So many patterns I've clicked on had broken links and then I remembered the Wayback Machine, with this search you can put in a link and it pulls up an archived copy of the site. So, I'm wondering is this ok for the KAL? These patterns once had pictures but no longer do because they are no longer hosted. We could bring some of them back from the dead so to speak and what could be more mysterious? I'm thinking of Laurie B's Koigu Ruffles. Anyway, let me know, I would think this would be acceptable but just in case... Looking forward to seeing some of these socks competed.

  • I think that's a great idea! If it doesn't have a picture (and you have never seen the pattern before, of course) then it definitely counts in my book.

  • I think I'm going to have to switch from Leaves of Grass to this one. I have a few skeins of Koigu that need to become socks, and no green sock yarn. ;)

  • What a great website. A lot of the socks that sounded interesting (I am drawn to good names) are for patterns that aren't online anymore. That archive tool is perfect for finding them again.
