Infinity Socks Forever!

A glorious new sock yarn just hit our shelves: Infinity Sock, from Laines du Nord!  Infinity's got a gradient base background color, striped with cheerful multicolored bands. What we think makes this one special (and clever!) is that the yarn cake is pre-wound to allow for the creation of an identical pair of socks using the toe-up construction method! Just make sock number one working from the outside of the wound cake, toe-up, working the stripe sequence to the desired height up the leg. Then just locate the teensy little pre-knotted knot in the yarn a bit further along and cast on from there for sock number two; for once, you'll be happy to find a knot in a ball of yarn. Foolproof!

Shop Infinity Sock HERE! We've got eight gorgeous colorways to choose from. Need a pattern for toe-up socks? We found an incredible one HERE!

Curious about Machine Knitting? 

We just found about an exciting series of machine knitting classes being offered at Make Nashville, a maker space in East Nashville. You'll learn the basics of flatbed machine knitting, and will make three or more projects during this six-week workshop. 
Your instructor, Anna Haferman, has been machine knitting for many years and is a founding member of the Nashville Machine Knitters group. And she's YouTube famous (!!!); her popular YouTube channel features machine knitting tutorials on flatbed knitting machines. 

Class begins September 25th, knitting machines will be provided for use in class. Interested? Grab a class ticket HERE! You just might see Meg there!
