    Hi Emily and Alexa, I just finished knitting my second pair of Rye socks, experimenting with fit- small or medium this time. With each pair I grow more confident turning a heel and picking up stitches in the gusset. My husband wants his own pair now! Thanks for your wonderful tutorials and responses to my questions.
    I look forward to February’s project and the year of more thoughtful knitting in 2017!

    I love this site! The first time I opened this page there was a picture of a child wearing a sweater in “Jingle Bells”. I have been searing for the pattern to no avail. Can you show it or tell me how to find it?
