I will be adding a new thread to the Crochet Luna Podcast page on Ravelry.  It will be where we can discuss anything that has to do with crochet socks.  Look for the Sock It To Me! thread in Ravelry.  We are lucky enough to have Tamara from Crafty Escapism as our resident sock expert.  She is actually teaching a crochet sock class so who better to help us out!  I showed a free sock pattern by a designer that Tamara suggested.  The designer is Karen Whooley and the pattern is the Cozy Crochet Socks.  She also suggested I look up Rohn Strong and Vicki Brown who also design socks.

Thank you again for all the crochet love and support you send my way.  I really, really appreciate it.  Sending you hugs from sunny Southern California.  Until next time, crochet on!
