Workshop Wednesdays: Stranded in Your Socks

I love socks! They are a great way to experiment with a new technique or pattern. That's what Stranded in Your Socks (Saturday, April 21st, 1pm - 4pm) is all about. This class focuses on stranded color knitting to make a sock cuff or tube. If you don't want it to be a sock, it can always be a wristwarmer or a very decorative sample! Mary Scott Huff walks you through the intricacies of stranded colorwork from swatching to starting your very own pair of socks!

Mary Scott Huff is an incredible colorwork designer. Her book The New Stranded Colorwork has been a knitting best seller and her new book, Teach Yourself VISUALLY Color Knitting, is sure to be one as well! She has such a great eye for colorwork and design! I have enjoyed reading her blog, Unravelling, for some time now. Her posts are both witty and insightful. I really enjoy how she intermixes her life with really helpful tutorials on a variety of knitting topics. I am sure her classes are incredible too. I'm so happy to be able to add her to the line up of teachers for this year. In addition to Stranded in Your Socks she is also teaching Eeek! Steeks! which I will cover in a future post!

Mary has also agreed to do a book signing at the Info Booth Sunday morning from 11am - 12pm, with a trunk show for her new book Teach Yourself VISUALLY Color Knitting. Preorders will be available at the Info Booth, too!
