Hello New Friends & Visitors!

Lots of new friends dropping by the blog after seeing My Vampire Boyfriend Sock on Knitty.

Nice to meet you all! I'm Wisehilda on Ravelry, BTW.

I cannot wait to see all the socks... lots of discussion from Team Edward about using sparkly sock yarn - well, of course.

In case we haven't met before, here are a few things you might enjoy...

My Socks 101 and Socks 102 articles on Knitty - everything you wanted to know about the hows, whys and wherefores of Sock Knitty.

A handful of free sock patterns: The February Lady Sock,

The Christmas sock (all over mock-cable rib for a great fit - and no cable needle required!)

and the ever- popular Basic Ribbed Sock (sized for men, also). A great first sock pattern, and a classic I use over and over again. So do others - check out the projects on Ravelry!

And a few socks patterns to buy....

the new Forest & Trees Sock (don't let the colour overwhelm the patterning, and don't let the patterning overwhelm the colour - a nice balance!) -on Patternfish & Ravelry

the Signature Cables & Twists sock (because who says that a pair of socks has to be exactly the same?)

the Open House sock (a great way to use up leftovers!) on Patternfish & Ravelry

And the Exploded Ribbing sock (as seen on Knitty in the Socks 102 article) - Patternfish & Ravelry

Thanks for dropping by! Hope to see you again soon!
