A unisex sock pattern


It is with great sadness that we share the news that the gifted knitting designer Adrienne Fong, passed away late last year after losing a long battle with cancer. We feel blessed that we had the opportunity to work with this talented lady. Her wonderful sock pattern To Bling Or Not To Bling is one we treasure.  

It is in honour of her memory we have decided to donate a portion of all of our knitting and crochet kits sales to the Little Angels Blood Cancer Fund .

Here is a link on CanadaHelps if you would like to make an immediate donation to them: CanadaHelps Little Angels.

What Is Remembered Lives!

ADRIENNE'S GIFT TO YOU!!!

Starting now, the digital copy of Adrienne's pattern To Bling Or Not To Bling Socks will also be available free of charge.  If you prefer a  print copy you will only be charged the cost of printing the pattern.

___________________________


Like Adrienne said: "This unisex pattern is manly enough for the guys in your life but can be beaded to add a little pizzaz for the gals who might enjoy a little “bling.”"  

This flexibility makes it the perfect sock pattern to use when planning presents for Everyone on your list!  A quick knit that creates an attractive sock with a cabled design, you  are sure to love the cosy socks you make up using To Bling or Not To Bling.
