I've been in sock mode lately and I decided to do a Summer Sock Club - June, July, and August we'll meet and there will be a pattern and yarn and a short class for whatever new techniques are in the sock. Part of doing this is to explore other sock techniques - I almost always use my really simple way of doing socks - toe up and with an afterthought heel - and there are a lot of other interesting ways to do socks out there. So each pattern will feature a couple of things that are different from my usual way of doing socks. This is not a beginner's sock class, but if you generally can read and work your way through a pattern you'll do just fine. You'll also get to use some different yarns than you may have used before. I should know the dates for this one by the end of the weekend and will send them out in the knewsletter too.
Another new thing is an iphone app featuring the shops of downtown Murfreesbor0. It just became available yesterday. It's here - the droid version is still being worked on. But it's kind of cool.
