Looking Forward - Knitting in the Heartland

While I sort of already know how to do toe-up socks doing the 2 circ method, as you know, I want to learn the Magic Loop if there's any humanly way to teach an old dog (me) new tricks.

I was just grousing about that in my last post. And then hey, I starting investigating the Sunflower Guild's Knitting in the Heartland conference being held April 5th and 6th. Guess what? I may learn Magic Loop once and for all because I'm taking a class with Carmen at Knitting in the Heartland. I signed up the other day. The class description says, "In this class, learn why we love to start at the toe, knit to fit, and when you run out of yarn, you're done! Knit a mini sock-shaped coin purse using the magic loop technique, learning invisible toe cast on, show row heel and alternatives to the standard bind off."

I have some flyers if anyone else is interested in taking some classes that first weekend in April or go to the Guild's website and check it out for yourself. The classes are economical and there will be a market as well. Stephanie Japhael of FITTED KNITS will be the featured guest teacher. Best of all Carmen and Kay will both be vendors there.

First, thanks for the nice comment on my drawings.

Second, I swear my brain would not learn to knit two socks at one time. I swear. I tried, once, and got my needles all tangled up, haha.

Now, I have to keep my eyes open for that Avon bag. I haven't seen it here, but if it's a make-up bag, then I would not pay too much attention. Although, I have lots of makeup bags that I use for my needles and hooks.

I love your yarns for your socks.
