Tour de Lance

Five years ago I designed a sock pattern honoring the Tour de France and Lance Armstrong's 7th win.  If you're following this year's race, perhaps you'd like to knit some socks to show your support.  I hope that inserting the files here works for you.  I've never been able to figure out how to insert a .pdf file into Blogger, so I saved them as a .jpg through Photoshop.  Each page is a separate file.  If all is working as I hope, you should be able to click on the picture to enlarge it and print it, and use your Back button to come back to this page. 

You're welcome to knit a pair for yourself or your friends, but please do not use them for any commercial purpose.  Also, if one of your friends wants a copy of the pattern, perhaps you'll be kind enough to send them here to my blog to do so.

I'd love to see pictures of your finished socks if you'd care to share them. is the pattern:


I'm not following the race this year, but even so, I'm very tempted to start this shawl, Eiffel Tower, and join in with the knitalong (Ravelry Link).  Just the fact that it is remiscent of Paris is enough for me.  I have too many things on the needles now, so will just one more be okay?  I bought the pattern, I have yarn in my stash.  We'll see....... !

The socks are great! I was also tempted by that lovely shawl, but I have new-baby knitting I MUST finish. Maybe later in the fall...
