Sock Talk

The Sock Talk at the Kawartha Hooks and Needles guild in Peterborough, ON went very well. They are a terrific bunch of knitters and crocheters.

And Jean wore her Summer Braids Cardigan made in Cotton Tweed Emerald. It looked lovely.
And Mildred brought her second Basic pullover from theTop Down For Toddlers book in a variegated yarn. It looked smashing.

Thanks ladies and gent. I hope I have convinced a couple more knitters that knitting socks is not so difficult and really fun to do. And I hope the sock knitters in the guild took away the thought that they too can design their own socks.

Tomorrow I'm teaching a Top Down class at Unwind Yarn House in Newmarket, ON. We're going to knit a teddybear sized top down with all the techniques needed for any size of top down. We'll also be talking about various adjustments for 'fit' you can make when you knit a top down for yourself. I'm looking forward to it.

Commenters:  Jo-anne (Jed) and Ann, you guys are having way too good a time with the J.J. Jacket . I'm glad it's on the UFO list but maybe you can get them done before next Fall!!
At our guild in Aurora,ON a UFO list (unfinished objects) circulates through the members. You sign up a list of projects you hope to finish in the year. For every finished object you get a ticket for a draw prize at the beginning of the next year. It's fun to hear members crowing "I finished . . ." to much applause. This will be Jo-anne and Ann soon.
