My grandma Helen is an interesting woman. I'm pretty sure that's the understatement of the century, but I won't expound on her fully. She is one of the reasons that I can knit/crochet, and a few years ago she turned 90. My parent's asked that I knit her some socks for her birthday, so here's the result. Helen socks are lacy, top-down socks that are really easy to memorize and fast to knit (no purling!). In honor of her 90th birthday, this sock pattern will be for sale for 90 cents.

I've been crafting since forever, knitting fanatically since about 2006 and designing since 2008. When not knitting, I teach university students about primates and play with my horses.
