The DKC is on the look out for FO’s to feature on Fini Friday.

Spotted… A Spring Kerchief!

It is knit with two colourways and has an interesting transition from one colourway to the next.

Business as Usual ….

The Summer of 2015 is winding down and the final quarter of the DKC Sock Club rolls around the corner on the first of September.

The next pattern for our sock-along is Business  Casual by Tanis Lavallee. Conservative with a modern twist to these preppy, faux-argyle socks which will  take you from the office to the weekend.

Search through your yarn stash and cast on anytime after 1st September.
