Have an idea for a knitting pattern based on a Hitchcock flick?
Send yourself over to Stephannie Tallent’s blog and get the skinny on how to submit your ideas!

And my new pattern (that I’m so proud of I’m even sharing it here!): Hunger Games-inspired Life and Death socks—designed for those of us who tend to give their socks a beating. (more details on knitting blog)

If you would like to purchase the pattern you can do it here through my regular shoppe account via the cart button below, or via my Ravelry shop where the pdf will be stored in your Library.

This sock is for the adventurous intermediate or expert knitter (or for a new knitter who hasn’t been told that socks, cables, and double knitting are hard, the therefore is able to do anything)
