Highlights + Happenings | July 2023

The Chilly Dog fetched your links to this month's featured knitting patterns, membership perks, tutorials, classes and more.


Duck Pond Socks

These toe-up socks were inspired by the Muscovy ducks who waddle around the Treasure Goddess Yarn studio. Duck prints walk their way down the socks. Contrasting garter ridges add a pop of color and texture.
