>I’m thrilled to report that my Magic Loop Socks class is full! Thanks, everyone, for signing up, we should have a lot of fun. If you didn’t make it into this great group, please call us anyway – if we get a few more people, I will happily set up another session. Just call and get on the list and we’ll make it happen! Magic Loop is great for socks and every other thing you could possibly knit in the round. I really like it as just one more way to reach my knitting goals!
Also, Cis has just added a session of Socks on DPNs (double-points), which will be on Saturday mornings starting February 9th. This class is already filling, so if you want to get in on the Sock Mania, call and get your spot today!

Cis mentioned the fun Flat Feet socks that she ordered at market last week. Here’s a photo of a pair of socks being worked up.
You unravel the dyed fabric and knit with it as it unravels. It’s way cool! We have it sitting on our front table, so come in and give it a try. We’re taking pre-orders for this product.
