I know! Gorgeous work knit by the magical and intrepid Colleen, Wonder Assistant. She always makes my patterns look good. (That's Colleen's foot in the photo. Unless you're looking at this on your phone, it's probably close to actual size. Her feet are tiny!)
This is the Gift Knit Kit Club pattern for February, Snuggly Socks. Sized for both men and women, it is made from the incomparable Mountain Colors Yarn, Crazyfoot. It's a very cozy sock in colors that can only come from Mountain Colors. I love the way they blend! It's an easy knit, but due to the yarn and the pattern, looks harder than it is. It will definitely elicit comments of, "I can't believe you made these!" If you choose to give them away, be sure to make another pair for yourself.

Like last month's gloves, the yarn alone for the socks costs more than the club members are paying for the yarn and the pattern, (In my LYS, $26 plus tax for the yarn vs. $26 no tax for the club) and it gets delivered right to your door. How cool is that?
Wishing you could get the pattern for yourself? All club patterns will be released for sale 90 days after the club members recieve their kits. Just wishing you could have the yarn? (I'm only slightly offended.) Call your LYS and see if they carry it, as the colorways are truly magical in person. They are available on line (at somewhat discounted prices) through Paradise Fibers. Seriously, though, check the LYS first. No computer monitor can show you these colors like they really look. And we need to support our local knitting communities.
