Beyond Socks: Pattern inspiration for your sock yarn stash

With our sock yarn sale coming to an end in a few days (March 25th to be exact, mark your calendars!), we wanted to share a few of our favorite patterns that go beyond the handknit sock.

Think small accessories like mitts, shawls, scarves but also garments! Sock yarns are simply wonderful for larger projects like cardigans and pullovers. Ready for a dose of sock yarn inspiration?
