Sock Summit Classes

I took 4 incredible classes at Sock Summit. Here are the highlights from each:

1. Chroma Zone with Tina Newton: In this class Tina walked through her process of dyeing yarn. It gave me a lot of food for thought on how I might grow my business in the future. I will definitely think about her class for many months to come.

2. The Deeper Meaning of Socks with Anna Zillborg: A philosophical look behind knitting and socks.

3. Fleece for your Feet with Judith McKenzie: Stephanie Pearl-McPhee said it best in her introduction of Judith for the class: this woman knows more about sheep than everyone in Sock Summit put together. This was an in depth look at the properties of different wool and their uses for footwear. Some day I would love to take a much longer class with her. I bet it would be amazing!

4. Perfect Buttonholes with Anna Zillborg: This class was on a totally ingenious way to make buttonholes. The best way I can describe it is a turned hem with kitchener stitch. If you have the chance, definitely take this class, it was very fascinating.

I really loved having the opportunity to take classes this time. It made Sock Summit that much more amazing. I definitely plan on taking classes again next time!

Those buttonholes look great, maybe even enough to overcome my kitchener aversion.
