Write a review

I'm dreaming of... learning to make a pair of socks from the toe up!.  This method is great for that one skein of special yarn.  Working from the toe up permits you to precisely fit each sock to your foot and to ensure there is enough yarn to finish the pair.  This 3-part class will cover everything you need to start, work, fit, and finish a complete pair of toe up socks.  We will be using Drea Renee Knits DRK Everyday Socks pattern, which includes a ton of information on sizing and necessary techniques.

Don't forget these...

"I'm so excited to finally find my perfect local yarn store. They carry such an amazing range of yarns, from locally sourced to small batch sheep to skein to naturally dyed. I've been twice (so far!) and I'm always greeted so nicely. It doesn't feel clique-y or snobby as some shops do. Their range is really amazing and so far I've gotten sweater yarn and yarn for 2 different shawls here. Dawn is great with color advice too. Highly reccomend!" - Google Review
"I couldn't leave this shop a high enough score. 10000/10. The instant I walked in, I was given a warm greeting and was immediately helped. I went in for sock yarn but, was overwhelmed by all the amazing local yarn. I love that they have a direct relationship with their yarn artisans. She even stayed a few minutes past closing when I was having problems picking just one skein. Never felt rushed or like she wanted me gone. She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly the righ.t product and even put my skein into a cake That's an amazing service that I've never been offered before. I can't say enough good things about this place. Ill definitely be making the trip there more often!" - Google Review
