Our Gift to You: Free Sock Knitting Pattern eBook
And you know I am a sock knitting fiend. So the gift I came up with is a free eBook of sock patterns!
I know, I know, it really is not fair to tempt you with one more nifty pattern–let alone FIVE more nifty patterns!–when it is eight days before the Big Jolly Dude comes down the chimney, but the free pattern elves just couldn't contain themselves. (Are the free pattern elves kind of like Hogwarts house elves? I think they must be.) I chose five of our top sock knitting downloads on Knitting Daily and put them all together in one FREE ebook for you.
So what kind of socks are in this eBook? Let's see. I tried to include a little something for everyone:
For the lace fiends amongst you, there's Ann Budd's delicate lacy Seduction Socks. For a cozy treat after shoveling the driveway, how about a pair of gorgeous colorwork socks–the Caspian Sea Socks by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts? For every day wear, or for the man in your life, there's the richly cabled William Street Socks by Lisa Shroyer: or the classicly textured Diagonal Rib Socks by Ann Budd. And for a quick, easy project, try the beginner sock pattern–large needles and large yarn!–called Comfy Socks, brought to you by the talented folks over at Knitscene magazine.
I hope this weekend finds you enjoying your family and friends–with perhaps a bit of knitting in hand–surrounded by warmth and joy.

What's on Sandi's needles? Last center repeat is done! Now I get to pick up, oh, 1400 stitches? and start the border on my Leaf and Nupp Shawl from Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush. (I love this pattern. Have I mentioned that I LOVE this pattern?)
