It's a lovely, grey afternoon that practically begs one to sit down and start a new pair of classic, autumnal socks. Well, have I got a sock pattern for you, just in time for the change in season (c'mon, Fall!)
Domovina (Ravelry link) is up, out and ready for you to make your own pair. Just wander on over to the sidebar for the relevant Ravelry and Etsy links.Here are some other important things you might like to know about Domovina:
