Credit Where Credit is Due

I jumped on the band wagon and made some pedicure socks. It's kind of funny because I never actually go out and get a pedicure, I just wish that I did. These have been on my to-do list since I saw them in Knitty 2006 as Pedicure Socks by Ruthie Nussbaum. In my attempt to link to the pattern, I searched on Ravelry only to find that there are several versions on Pedicure Socks. Hmmm...really? It seems like Ruthie Nussbaum made these up. Even Patron's has a version, but I couldn't find the copyright date as proof that the Knitty pattern came first. Instead of the Knitty pattern, I used a sock making guide that I've had around. However, Ruthie Nussbaum gets credit because her pattern was my inspiration.
I actually used an old Family Circle article that I've had for years. I have no idea when it was published. This article is what I used when I first was learning to make socks. It's been years since I've made socks, and I wanted to review turning the heal, so that is one reason why I made the Pedicure Socks.
The yarn used was from the Hand Dyed, Hand Carded, Hand Spun Tarhgee that I spun in January.
