Stefanie's Spring-Tastic Socks!

Stefanie’s Spring-Tastic Socks!

Stefanie not only has her pattern in the collection, but an article that will get you knitting socks in no time! I just had her put down in an article the answers to every question I had for her while I was knitting her pattern so it should really help you get through them if you aren’t use to knitting socks like me!

She’s also got a skein of Manos del Uruguay Alegria sock yarn and a copy of her pattern to give away, so be sure to click over and enter to win!

And come back here next week for more blog tour fun!
