A Sock Yarn Sampler and two Sock Patterns from Yarn Love.

Katie works from the Yarn Love studio in rural Iowa, inspired by the beauty of her natural surroundings.  It’s pretty safe to say she spends most of our waking hours working with, or talking about, yarn. When she’s not dyeing yarn and answering your inquiries, she loves to spin, knit, and devise patterns.

Good luck and have fun,
