Another Auld Lang Syne
Friends, parties, and a ball drop at midnight. Reflection, self examination, plans, and resolutions.
Ring in the New Year with this beautiful colorway that boasts four matching mini me’s for a variety of heel/toe combinations.
Make it your New Year’s resolution to knit up this divine design.
4 rows each Party, Fireworks, Kiss, Resolution, all surrounded by 7 rows Midnight. Mini Me’s in Party, Fireworks, Kiss, Resolution
If you’re not a football fan, then just move along.
Otherwise, put on your big boy pants and throw in this good looking hunk of a trick play.
Yup, it’s a bit risky, but the payoff can be a big 6 points and a handsome pair of socks.
1 row Trick Play, 4 rows Lateral, 4 rows Trick Play, 18 rows Turf. Mini Me in Trick Play
Baby It’s Cold Outside
You really can’t stay – but she’s so beautiful – enticing you to knit just one more stripe.
You ought to say no, no, no. But that potato chip knitting is putting you under a spell.
You simply must go – but baby it’s cold outside.
5 rows each Blizzard, Flurry, Freeze, all surrounded by 3 rows Chill. Mini Me in Chill
“It starts in your toes and your self striping rows,
Wherever it goes, you’ll always know.
That she’ll make you smile, please knit for a while now,
Just bring her along, where you go.”
5 rows each Laugh, Grin, Chuckle, Glee, Happiness, Delight, Bliss, Cheer. Mini Me in Laugh
A bit retro, a bit hip, and a whole lotta good lookin’, Vintage vibe is the bees knees!
Five nostalgic stripes, each surrounded by iron black, make for a splendid pair of socks!
4 rows each Olive, Glass, Sepia, Soft Blue, Terra Cotta, surrounded by 2 rows Iron. Mini Me in Iron
Rejoice! All the drama, shenanigans, love, luncheons and Maggie Smithisms are back for a final season.
Will Mary and Edith (and Tom, and Isabel, and Thomas) find love? Will Anna finally (please!) be cleared of murder? Will Spratt get the better of Denker?
Who knows what Season 6 will bring, but grab a cuppa, a remote, your needles and settle in for some fun!
6 rows each Upstairs, Downstairs, Masterpiece, Crawley, Grantham
You’re stressed. Everything seems to be going wrong. Feel free to throw a tantrum (the Lollipop Gals have been known to throw a few).
Better yet, knit up this gradient girl and feel your worries slip away.
