Adventures in Socks

Hi Everyone

I am so happy to let you know that we will again be running a Sock of the Month Club.

Cathy McCracken  will be running if for me this time around, she is a excellent and very enthusiastic sock knitter always trying something a little bit different. I am sure you are really going to enjoy the socks she has planned for you. I might even find time to knit some of them myself!!

The details are listed below , if you have any questions just let me know.  Please let me know if you are planning to join us.

Happy Knitting Lynn and Cathy


Adventures in Socks (Sock of the Month Club)

Starting Thursday January 29th at 7:00 pm we are embarking on Adventures in Socks!  We will meet the last Thursday  of each month from now til May at The Purple Sock, get our new pattern, pick out some lovely yarn, and get ready for a new pair of socks! Each month will have a different yarn and pattern, with a little of everything hand knit socks has to offer.....

The cost will be $35 plus HST  per month which includes the yarn, pattern and assistance from resident sock adventurer Cathy.  There is no pressure to attend every month, but that little deadline may help prevent the dreaded ‘second sock syndrome’ as you try to finish your pair for the next round.

You need to have knit socks before and be comfortable knitting in the round in order to join in as this is not a beginner sock class.  For the first adventure please bring your favourite sock needles and some scrap sock yarn to try some new techniques that evening. Whatever needles you are comfortable using ie. dpn’s or circulars they will work for our first sock. 

 Also if you have a tablet or phone that you use for Ravelry, bring it along so we can keep our projects up to date.
