Sock Club using Operation Sock Drawer Book via ZOOM with Sandi!

This club is designed to work through various socks together as a KAL.  Trying different techniques like stretchy cast-on, toe up technique, top-down technique and different heels for the perfect sock fit.  Two socks will be selected that will allow for everyone to try these new techniques and the final sock will be from their choice from the book.  I will be there to assist with questions and help whenever needed.

Instructor: Sandi Avila
Instructor Bio: I was born in Greenwich, Connecticut and moved to Boulder in 1975 and have never ventured too far from here. I enjoy living where you can appreciate the outdoors year-round and knit in every season. During a month-long visit, my German grandmother taught me to knit, that was 40+ years ago. I have been knitting non-stop ever since, I always have something brewing on the needles. I continued my journey in knitting and found my true passion was knitting sweaters. I really enjoy the evolution of a sweater more than any other project. I am excited to become an instructor as I love to share my passion with others and help them dispel the fear of a fitted garment. As an added bonus, I found a husband who encourages my knitting habit; he ventures with me to knit shops when we are traveling, its always on the itinerary. It was in the last few years that I found my knitting clan at Longmont Yarn Shoppe and love the sharing, encouragement and support we bring to each other. It?s a wonderful community to be a part of.
