My friend Daniella's middle name is Marie and she likes to append "Marie" onto anyone's name for humorous purposes, not to mention her own business name (Rebel Marie). If she's scolding me, I'm Shannon Marie (I'm not a Marie. I'm an honorary Marie now). Combine this with her asking me to name a pattern after her, and me already calling these socks Valencia in-studio and well... here we are.
Yarn note: sadly, Kitchen Sink Dyeworks is no longer in business. This sample was knit in colorway Valencia, hence the name. My substitution recommendation is Citrus in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock.You can choose either a printed copy of the pattern, professionally printed on glossy paper or a digital download (PDF).
