What a deal!

Last weekend, I was browsing around in a Barnes and Noble store and found a 2005 Knitting Pattern-a-Day calendar in the 75% off bin. Including tax, it cost less than $4. Normally, I don't like buying pattern books without seeing the patterns first, but I figured that I was bound to like a few of the patterns among the hundreds of patterns in the pack. (And before some smarty-pants tells me that there are 365 patterns in the pack, let me say that Saturdays and Sundays are combined as one "day" and some patterns are spread across two days. So there!)

Well, I was correct--there are several patterns that I like. But, of course, there are several patterns that I know I will never make. For example, all the sock patterns. I don't knit socks. The only exception was the pair of Fuzzy Feet that I made as an experiment.

So...if anyone out there wants the sock patterns, I would be happy to mail them to you. Just let me know your snail mail address and the patterns are yours!

Mmm, socks...
I'm in Alvin but frequent the Clear Lake SnB; if you want a yarn-winding party, swing by some Monday! (Just give me a heads-up so I can bring the winder. :) )
