So now that we are getting caught up again, it occurs to me that there was a missing something...
Have you actually seen the final pattern in the Socks For All Seasons collection?
Lantern Festival is celebrated on the last day of Chinese New Year. Traditionally, thousands of colorful lanterns are hung or paraded around during the full moon at the beginning of a new year. At this time, people try to solve puzzles written on lanterns, eat yuanxiao (元宵) (glutinous rice ball) and enjoy a family reunion.
Knit your own beaded lantern socks today, and solve the riddles at the end of the pattern for fun.
