Short Attention Span

In Fingering weight yarn, Patterns, Shop sample available, Socks, Toe Up by Shannon

When we have so many things pulling us in all directions, the last thing we want from our knitting projects is more pressure. That’s why I’m all about the anklet lately – just as you are finding yourself so stinking sick of your current project, it’s time to cast off and start something new. The Flying Geese pattern along the top, and the back cuff add visual and knitterly interest.
