Now Through December 13th!

Join us to make these pretty socks, and you might even win a prize! 

Description:  Trails of dew drop-tipped cascading leaves adorn the legs of these gorgeous, lacy socks.   Worked from the top down, this design combines a fun-to-work leaf motif with a little bit of bling to take the nature theme up a notch!  A shadow-wrapped short row heel with an added mini-gusset ensures a comfortable fit and tidy looking turn.  Instructions are provided for three widths in text and charts.

No yarn purchase is required to participate in the KAL, but kits are available for $26 in your choice of 33 yarn colors and a variety of bead colors by scrolling below. Or, if you prefer to visit your stash, you can download the pattern to your Ravelry library.
