While trudging through the merciless process of buying our first home, I've wanted to knit nothing but row after row of comforting stockinette. Along came Rose City Rollers - an ankle sock with no ribbing a comforting promise: fun socks I could wear almost immediately.

Rose City Rollers is a pattern perfect for new sock knitters. With clear instructions for working on DPNs, this pattern is a revelation for new and experienced knitters alike and it's free on Ravelry. I'm finishing up my first pair using Julianna's Fibre Lucid Dream sock yarn. A great stashbusting pattern, you can use your craziest hand dyed yarns for this quickie pattern. No more languishing neon skeins!
