Once upon a sock in June 18 – actually all about socks

Hey lovely readers, I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you a bit. Happily today is the first Thursday of the month, which means I owe you a sock update – and I have LOTS to show you because it’s been all socks, all the time round here lately. First off, for those who missed my last…

PATTERN: Arthur to Ben socks
