The Year of Handknit Socks is well underway! The first pair off the needles for 2014, Snow Queen Socks by Emmy Coplea, feature a Dutch heel which is a first for me. The yarn for these came from The Quarter Stitch in New Orleans, LA. It is Colinette Jitterbug in the Pharaoh colorway. My husband liked it so much that he asked for fingerless gloves in this colorway. Which means that our son can have a pair of socks out of his leftovers! We will be a matchy- matchy family. Happy knitting.
