It's no secret that Hanna Lisa adores knitting - and wearing - socks. The "Not-So-Vanilla Vanilla Socks" are the perfect canvas for showing off that gorgeous hand-dyed skein of yarn you've had in your stash forever, or for your first foray into all-natural sock yarns.
The pattern is graded to 5 sizes and comes with measuring instructions and a little calculation exercise to ensure the perfect, snug fit on your own foot. They're knit toe-up with a Fleegle's Heel - Hanna Lisa's absolute favorite heel to fit a medium-to-high instep.

You know how much we love a good, all-natural sock yarn - and Ovis Et Cetera's "Close" is as close to perfect as it gets. Custom-spun by John Arbon Textiles in the UK, it's a delightful blend of Devon Closewool, Exmoor Blueface and Zwartbles from sheep flocks that live close to the mill. In its undyed shape, it's a beautiful heathered grey, and when Saskia adds her dyeing magic to it, it transforms into the most gorgeous glowing jewel tones.
Close is spun with a little bit of extra twist for increased durability. It has great stitch definition and a bit of a halo, which makes it ideal for cables, texture, and soothing stockinette. Plus, it works really, really well for colorwork!
