Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This is a firm gauge for worsted weight yarn. I go by Lucy Neatby’s credo—knit your socks as tightly as you can. Doing this will reduce the inevitable wear-and-tear. These socks are strictly plain vanilla, which is why the pattern is free. It’s a no-brainer for those knitters who are experienced sock knitters. But a good pattern for novices.
Knitting: Ankle Sock
This pattern was originally published on the KnitList in 1997 as a free Christmas gift to KL members. Back then, digital cameras weren’t available and most people posted their patterns sans pictures. It was truly knitting on faith.
