  • Not-So-Vanilla Vanilla Socks

    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.
