7 Knitting Projects for National Pink Day

I love the color pink. There, I said it. I know all you pink-haters out there are rolling your eyes and making gagging noises, but it really is one of my favorite colors. (Back when I worked in a lab, I had a pink lab coat that would have been perfect for Scientist Barbie.) I […]

Pattern of the Week: Cube Socks

Yarn sets are always such a temptation for me; they’re like little colorful yarny bonbons or bouquets of tiny skeins. Unfortunately, I never know what to do with them. Accent stripes on mittens?
