Mardi Gras Freebie (today only)!

These socks were inspired by the Medieval "Carnival" tradition of everything being "topsy turvy" with the peasants and elite. Hence the reverse stockinette stitch on the heel, foot and toes. The ribbing is unique too. I hope you like the different takes on the sock.
Have a fun and safe day today!

Enter to WIN Noro's newest book!

Sixth&Spring contacted me several weeks ago to see if I would review their two newest books that are coming out this spring. Of course I jumped on it! They also mentioned that I can run a give-away for them. This book is filled with colorful and textured scarves, shawls, hats, gloves and more! You don't want to miss it.

I've been wanting to run a proper hat KAL from this blog, so what better way to kickstart one than to have a fabulous prize?!

March's HAT KAL: 
"Quick Ombre Hat" pattern by Emily Dormier (FREE pattern)

One winner will be chosen at random from this KAL to win the "Knit Noro Accessories 2" book that will be released this April.

Projects must be started between the frame of March 1st and completed & posted in the FO thread no later than March 31st. The winner will be announced April 1st.
