Free Pattern Release: My Favorite Vanilla Socks

Happy Friday, knitters! 

How about a little prezzie for your weekend knitting follies? I've had quite a few people ask for easy, beginner sock patterns and it doesn't get easier than vanilla socks. I definitely have a template for my favorite TV knitting socks so I figured I'd write it up and share it with you. 

My Favorite Vanilla Socks

The pattern is available in my Free Patterns section here on the website (or HERE on Ravelry). Download it. Make lots of socks. And make them YOUR Favorite Vanilla socks!

Free Pattern: Mystic Mytts

As we draw closer to Christmas (can you believe it's only 34 days away???) I think we're all in the same boat: PANIC GIFT KNITTING!!! And I'm no exception. These quick-to-knit fingerless mitts are a gift for my favorite mother in law (read: ONLY MIL). I had so much fun knitting these up I thought it was worth a share for all of you looking for something you can knit up in one day.
