Question from Lindahart, “LaLa, you said that you’re making socks with all different heels. What a COOL idea!! I’d love to hear more about how you find those sock patterns, what they are, and what you think are some of the most interesting ones. It would make a great newsletter topic for Closely Knit! : )”
