Time for Toe Ups!

Em's Lace SockIt’s no secret I love toe-up socks. I usually have several pairs on the needles – sometimes I even finish one! This addictive method creates well fitting socks for any feet, especially when paired with an adjustable gusset and short-row heel. It’s also the perfect canvas for all kinds of stitches and color work techniques. We have two wonderful classes coming up, with master sock knitters and local designers Emily Devlin and Sivia Harding.
