We'll Rock Your Socks Off

This October, we’re partnering with designer Lisa Ross to devote an entire month to sock knitting!  Sign up for this exciting event and get advance copies of Lisa’s Socktober Collection before they are released to the general public. The collection includes 4 sock patterns in varying degrees of difficulty and style (top-down and toe-up construction; traditional and short-row heels).  These patterns will work for solid, semi-solid, variegated, and even self-striping yarns.

We will unveil a brand new sock yarn at our regular Sock Club meeting (Wednesday, October 5), and release printed copies of the patterns to those who sign up for the knit-along.  In addition, every Wednesday in October (5:30-7:30 pm) will be Sock Night for those participating in the KAL!  Lisa will knit along with us throughout the month and will be available to answer questions and chat about the patterns.  You must already have experience with sock knitting to join this KAL as this will not be a class.

Pre-registration is required. Please call the shop at 812/330-5394 or come in today to register for a sock knitting extravaganza! Space is limited so call today to reserve your spot.  Cost: $29.  
All participants will receive a printed/digital copy of all patterns of the KAL.
Prizes will be awarded for:  
1.  One sock completed
2.  Two socks completed
3.  Each Wednesday, all present registered attendee's are eligible for a chance to win a prize.
