Politically Correct

DSCN0962Just one stitch will cause your sock to “lean” to the left or the right.  Make one of each and you have a pair of politically correct socks.  This top down sock starts with a unique bobble row and spirals on down to an easy short row heel.  Everyone votes for this sock!

Knit with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock and revealed in September, 2008.

Building Blocks (Block of the Month)

DSCN1306Building Blocks is a skill building class that has students knitting a different 12″ block every month that can be pieced together to create a lovely sampler afghan.  The emphasis of this class is EDUCATION.  Students are guided through the various stitches and techniques each month as their knitting knowledge is increased.  With a different skill focus each month there is something new to learn at each class.  Topics such as gauge, cast ons, bind offs, cables, increases, decreases, lace, pattern reading and more are covered.  This class has become popular thanks to the content and the friendly atmosphere.  Join in the fun!

New session beginning in early 2011 at Knitting Temptations of Dublin, Ohio.  Contact me with any questions.
