New Knitting Pattern & Craft Tutorial in ROTH!

Hey everyone!  I hope you'll check out my latest free pattern, Thermal Textured Socks, debuting today on the winter edition of Rhythm of the Home!  But it's more than just a pattern, it's a sock-knitting tutorial that demystifies sock knitting and explains the anatomy of a hand-knitted sock.  The pattern provides lots of extra details and photos to guide you through each step.  If you haven't tried knitting socks yet, this is definitely a great place to start.

The pattern is written in both women's and men's sizes and can be knitted plain (for beginning sock knitters) or with the optional texture pattern for more advanced or adventurous knitters.  I hope this tutorial and pattern show you that sock knitting is much easier than you may think.

Also, check out my Four Seasons Nature Box tutorial.  It's a great craft to do with kids, plus it nets you a convenient place to store all the fun things you and your kids bring in from outdoors.  (There's nothing quite like a walnut underfoot when you're not expecting it!)  Plus, maybe it'll inspire you to get outside more this winter.  I especially enjoyed the decorating one side of the box for each season.  I hope you do, too!

I'd love it if you'd come back here to tell me what you thought of either or both tutorials.  Thanks for reading!


  1. Ooooh! I've never knit a sock. But I have a weakness for thermal shirts... I may have to give this one a try. Thanks for the pattern! (:

  2. I can't wait to cast on Kelly, thank you!

  3. Congrats! Awesome to have a project 'published!'
    (visiting from rub some dirt on it)

  4. Thank you so much Kelly!! These projects both look beautiful!

  5. I can't wait to check it out! I've been thinking about socks but so not adventurous enough to just try and this should do the trick :)

  6. If this truly demystifies the sock... I just may give it a go!! I've wanted to venture into the world of socks for months now but have a fear of the dpn's. We'll see...

    Blessings, Debbie

  7. Hiya. I'm going to definitely check out your sock tutorial, what a wonderful thing for you to have done. Thank you!

  8. Oooh, I love the sock pattern. I've made a few pairs of plain socks but I want my next pair to have some sort of pattern and this looks perfect :)

  9. I love the idea of having a place for all our treasures. I just emptied our autumn nature plate today and Jax cried! A good reason to hold onto them all year long!!

    Thanks for sharing this!
