Two and a half

That’s how many pairs of socks I knit while writing/testing this pattern! You’ve already seen the green and gray pair I knit for my Hogwarts secret pal last year. Here’s a better picture of the stitch pattern that I didn’t show you at that time. Amelia’s socks were size Medium.

Decisions, decisions (Part One)

I’ve been thinking about what to knit for my Sockapalooooza pal. I browsed through Knitty, MagKnits, and Nancy Bush’s books for inspiration.
