Below we have compiled a few sock ideas for you to
look at on ravelry.
All the terms listed below to describe information
about the sock pattern are different techniques you will learn within all sock
patterns – Take up the challenge!!
Week 1: Follow along with Pam or branch off on your
own – Pam does have more patterns in the works!
Pam has knit up one of her
newest sock patterns “Afterthought From Forethought” for us to start with.
This sock features fun
techniques using magic loop, working stripes, cuff down, afterthought heel,
ribbed leg, coloured toes/heels. Learning
the afterthought heel allows the striped sock yarns to continue in stripe all
the way down to the toes. Then the “after thought” heel comes in to play.
pattern will be up loaded to Ravelry as a paid for pattern, but Pam has offered
it up for this class only as a “pay by donation”.

We hosted a KAL (Knit Along) at the shop during March. We called for participants and 18 ladies stepped up to join in the fun.
The prize to win was a set of Magic Loop needles by HiyaHiya complete with the gorgeous silk case.
I am happy to announce that Jennifer M has knit the winning wrap!! Congratulations!!
The lovely textured Guernsey Wrap rekindled knitters to reconnect with knitting, conjured up a family connection to the Guernsey Islands, some just wanted to have fun and knit something a little different- what ever the reason - we all had fun!!
Red, turquoise, many shades of grey, off white, pure white, baby pink, royal blue, natural brown, lilac, heathered dark green, butterscotch, granite - a real rainbow of choices
We had a wonderful time!! Thanks to everyone for participating. Stay tuned we have another KAL coming up soon
