Quick, easy and a go-to project for scores of knitters, there's nothing more comfortable than sliding on a pair of hand knit socks on a cool autumn evening. But we're hoping you wouldn't mind getting a little UN-comfortable for this Knit Along.
To celebrate the arrival of our new sock yarns we want you to get out of your comfort zone and learn a new technique when it comes to this knitting classic. Whether it's two at a time, toe up, stranded or something we've never even heard of, we want you to try something you've never done before. Never knit a sock before? No worries! Tackling the standard cuff-down structure and working the gusset is adventure enough.
Sarah Deeth is leading this KAL and she’s put together some pattern suggestions. Feel free to run with one of these, or choose your own.
Sunday Sept. 8 - 1pm to 3pm
Sunday Sept. 22 - 1pm to 3pm
As always, participation in the KAL is free with yarn purchase, either in store or online. Feel free to come to as many or as few meetings as you please! Sarah will be there to help you decipher your project and cheer you to the finish line.
