Unwind this summer with a knitted sock project! Whether you're on holiday or enjoying a relaxing staycation at home, this portable project is perfect for creating comfy socks, wherever you are. TheSummer Sock-A-Long, created by Carmen of New Leaf Designs, designer of the 2020 Cosy Moments MAL and 2022 Sassenach KAL, showcases a vibrant sock project for intermediate knitters and adventurous beginners.
