Sock Hop

In January, we're starting a Ribbed Sock Knit-a-long. If you've never ever made a sock before, this is your chance. It doesn't get easier than a ribbed sock, and I promise to be there for you when the process stops making sense. (At the heel turn, in case you were wondering!) If you've made socks forever, make any ribbed sock that you like -ribbed lace, ribbed cables, whatever.... This is your opportunity to shine.

The "due date" for the newly birthed socks will be Saturday, January 26th. Bring your socks in. We'll label them as yours and display them on the "sock clothesline". You can, of course, reclaim your socks whenever you like, or even choose not to display them. But we're a pretty supportive crowd; displaying your new sock could have some rewards ;) And if it's your very first sock ever, we'll feature you and your sock on this blog.

Come in at any point to choose yarn and needles. We'll have a free pattern for you, or we'll help you choose an appropriate one from our books, magazines and on-line resources. Help with your knitting is available any time the store is open. Help and companionship and moral support are particularly available on Fridays and Saturdays.

If you want to offer up a raffle prize for completed sock participates let me know. I'd be more than happy to offer up one of my sock knitting bags as a prize.
