Aaaand it's Day 10, the last day of this year's Winter Celebration! Thank you SO MUCH for joining us this year - I loved spending the past 10 days with you, and I hope you enjoyed your time with us here as well. I can't wait to start into a new year together (we have so many exciting things planned!), but for now, let's end this Celebration with something extra special: Today's gift is a brand-new pattern for you!
You know how much I love having a simple stockinette sock on the needles, even more so if it's in a fun, non-superwash yarn. Over time, I have come to realize a few things that I love in socks: a snug fit, a gusset that has juuust the right amount of fabric, and no holes where the heel meets the leg.
Meet: The Not-So-Vanilla Vanilla Socks! All of these things are taken care of in this new pattern - Fleegle's heel for a great fit, and an extra tip for getting rid of those annoying little holes at the ankle.
Download them by clicking on the link or the picture up above! I would love to see your own version of them - tag us on Instagram, and use the hashtag #notsovanillavanillasocks if you like!
Today also marks the last day of our Winter Celebration Box. I hope you enjoyed your gifts every day - if you got one, do let me know in the comments below what you loved most! And if you have any feedback on them, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I want to bring them back next year, so your thoughts are invaluable!
Your gift for today perfectly matches the pattern - it's a 100g skein of one of my favorite sock yarns, woollentwine's Corriedale Sock. Jule dyed up a special colorway for us called "Winter Blossom", which knits up so, so beautifully. The sample of the Not-So-Vanilla Vanilla Socks is knit up in it, so you can see for yourself! (It basically knit itself - I just wanted to get to the next fun speckle!)
If you want to get your hands on this yarn, we still have a few Winter Celebration Skeins that include the yarn and an extra gift in the shop.
