Fall weather is upon us!  I don’t know about you but I love the scents of this season, moist leaves burning in the crisp autumn air and apple cider on the stove with cinnamon sticks to greet you when you come home.  Delicious!!

We are so excited to have this weather change upon us since it is perfect timing to cast on a pair of socks.  Join us at Alpaca Direct as we join Michelle Hunter in her Cableship KAL!  This toe up sock pattern is full of great cable techniques, but also includes a heel that is new to the series.  This KAL is free and no registration is required.  Simply click here anytime after 9am, tomorrow, October 6th, to download the first installment of the pattern.  Videos and daily feedback will be provided by Michelle Hunter on her website and on Ravelry.

If you have not bought your Zauberball check out our selection of them and get it ordered so you can be a part of this great autumn project!

Prizes will be provided by Skacel Collection.
