Late March by Knitterella | It seems every year, as the Michigan Winter transitions to Spring, the warming temps inspire me to design a fresh pair of socks. Aptly named, “Late March” reflects our move from Winter into Spring. The precious delicate stitch marching down the front of these socks is easier than it looks. This clever, enjoyable knit will be a welcome addition to your handknit sock collection.
