Love these.  Learning to knit is on my to do list but in the meantime, I don't see these on your etsy store, will you be selling these at any of the Christmas craft selling events?


Yes! I will be at the December Delight on December 8th with a few pairs. Also you can special order them - just send me an email at [email protected] if you're interested! Thanks, - Natalie
