Autumn is in the air! There's a crisp smell in the neighborhood and I feel like curling up with a cup of tea and a good book. I love autumn. Already Mr. Bonnet and I are scheming how to scare entertain the kids in the neighborhood on Halloween, and my thoughts are turning to pumpkin pie, hearty soups, woolen cosies, the holidays and holiday knitting.
Just in time for the turning of the leaves, I'm launching my first collection, called Winter Luxuries. It's 10 patterns for accessories that use 1 or 2 skeins of yarn. They're designed to get a jump on holiday gifts and also use up a little stash (or a good excuse to buy that skein that's been calling to you). Several are perfect for that one skein of special yarn that you've been holding on to but didn't know what to make.
First up is the Chartres Sock pattern. This one was formerly only available through my sock club, but now you can get it as a standalone pattern or as part of the collection.
The patterns are being released separately, or you can buy the whole collection for a substantial savings. The patterns will be released over the next 4 weeks via ravelry. You don't need to be a member of ravelry to purchase/download the patterns.
