You all know my friend Kristin, right? She guest-wrote on my blog a little while back. She also got her first pattern on Ravelry earlier this year!
It’s a fun, toe-up sock pattern where you hold a traditional sock yarn and lofty mohair together to make FUZZY SOCKS! How genius is that! So, of course, I picked out yarn for it as soon as I was able, but I haven’t had an opportunity to cast-on yet.
Kristin wore her socks while we lounged around at the Sunflower Knitter’s Guild retreat, so everyone got to see and feel how awesome they were. We had quite a group that also wanted to make a pair, so we thought why not host a knit-along?
And that’s exactly what we’re going to do! Grab your favorite sock yarn and a coordinating mohair, the pattern is free on Ravelry. We’ve decided we’re going to have a Cast-on Party at the HyVee Bar on 95th and Metcalf in Overland Park at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 3rd. Want to join us but can’t be there in person? Join us on Instagram with the hashtag #FuzzySocksKAL. We’re hoping to have a finished pair of socks by the end of May, but don’t feel like you have to hold yourself to the same standard!
So join us! You know you want a handmade pair of fuzzy socks!
