  1. Hi I am a HUGE buc's Fan I went to the web page and it is no longer free I guess? Please let me know I can not afford to purchase anything I just wanted to knit myself some socks :)

  2. Hi. I checked it out (It's been almost 2 years since I knit those socks ya know) and it looks like you are right. The designer has decided to sell the pattern rather than offer it for free. I no longer have my pattern. I gave it to my pirate luvin' daughter.
