Gosh this fall is flying fast. I’m going to make this post short and sweet. Firstly, another free pattern. I hope you enjoy it. A simple and classic mitten made with worsted weight wool. Get your Houndstooth Check Mittens here: houndstooth mitts
Secondly: doughnuts. Oh yes I did. A Martha recipe for Pumpkin Cornmeal doughnuts. I dusted some with cinnamon sugar and for some I whipped up a glaze comprised of maple syrup, icing sugar and a dash of milk. YUM!
I knit these up in the spring, and I gotta get my hands on some more Fixation! They are so comfy and cushy. I wish I had a pair for everyday. This is a straightforward free pattern, written for toe-up. I knit 2 at a time on one long circular, but you can do it however you please. I do hope you enjoy it!

Well, I finally finished typing up my toe-up sock pattern ” The Joy of Kroy” – catchy, non? I have a new found respect for all those pattern writers and designers out there – it’s harder than I realized to describe how to do a heel, etc. Anyway, I hope it comes in handy for some knitters out there. I hope to cast on another pair today! You can access the pdf file on the right, or below – linky! Edited to add: I fixed a spelling typo! I hope you find Kroy to be a “thicker” sock yarn and not a “thinker” sock yarn as I had originally written – thanks Michele!
Enjoy and happy knitting!
