Originally released with paid membership to Supernatural Yarns' Ancient Runes Tonal Sock Yarn Club, <3 is now available for individual purchase!
From the pattern description: "Kenaz. The rune of passion, symbolizing the vital fire of life. The person aligning with this rune is powerful; yet, that power is harnessed and controlled. They show the fire of transformation and regeneration, and hold the power to create their own reality. They possess the power of light, and are always open to new strength, energy, and power.
One character epitomizes this rune above all others, and that is Ginny Weasley. Full of life, love, and passion she is able to channel her power without ego. She is strong of character and mind, and resolute in her morals and beliefs so that she will never be swayed by darkness. Only a special person could carry this mantle through life, and capture of the heart of The Boy Who Lived forevermore.
The Kenaz rune is centrally themed in a lace pattern, paired with a "3" to form a heart. This symbolizes the passion and love that drives Ginny in her life. A subtle lightning bolt-shaped pattern on the sides pays homage to Harry Potter, who we all know is the other half of Ginny's soul.

I got my start sitting on my grandmother's lap and operating the knee pedal on her old Singer while she worked as a seamstress...must've been 3-4 years old. Such happy memories!
I owe my knitting and crochet skills to my paternal grandmother, who was determined to make a lady out of her unruly, tomboy granddaughter. I'd like to think she succeeded....somewhat.
