Socktober 2012 a Success!
Over 100 guild members participated in the first SOCKTOBERFEST held during our meeting on October 4th. Members took classes in knitting men’s socks, designing your own sock, the magic loop, learning basic socks, the Turkish Bed Sock, a color works class, slippers, and Hubba Bubba, turning the heel.
The variety of classes and the various skill levels of the classes provided the opportunity for neophytes and experts to learn something new and exciting when making socks. The classes were taught by our own members who graciously shared their knowledge with participants. New members who attended the meeting were not left out. All the instructors opened up their classes to accommodate our new fellow knitters which made them feel welcomed.
