For January’s program, we will have a Sock knit along. We will be learning a two-at-a-time on two needles technique.
Are you Bi-crafty? Our own Linda Demaray will introduce us to crochet basics! If you knit, crochet makes wonderful edging and cast-ons. If you crochet, please come and help those of us as we learn to crochet. No homework; just bring a J or K hook and some worsted weight yarn!
