    Sock School: Join me for a summer knitalong

    April 29, 2016

    I am delighted to announce the (hopefully first annual) summer Sock School knitalong! To me, socks are the absolutely perfect summer knitting. They're small, portable, perfect for pool-side and outdoor knitting, and they are endlessly magic. Bonus: come fall, your feet will be super warm and cozy!

I'm finally on the mend and happily digging back into studio goings-on. One of the things I just love is seeing Little Skein kits being knit, reading happy posts in our Ravelry group and seeing your inspired Instagram photos. The #secretgardenalong has been so inspiring to me and, I hope, to you too! In the Yarniacs group, you can see photos of incredibly inspired projects. In the Little Skein Ravelry group, there are even more inspired...
