Among the classes is a heart embellishing class that is being offered by Tara of Soul Xpressions. All you have to do is knit 3 small hearts and stuff them then bring them with you on February 5th for embellishing. The class and embellishing kit (enough for 3 hearts) is $15.
The Pull up Your Socks KAL continues with several people coming in to show me their progress. Sharon and Geri were in with a finished sock each.
I have also finished the final black sock.....FINALLY....Black sock weight is not my favorite to knit in but I love wearing them!
Just in to the shop is Debbie Bliss Angel..... A stunningly beautiful mohair, silk blend that knits up very light and feathery.

Yes I am a person who suffers from SSS...It is sad but true... I hope this KAL will cure me! (Don't stop knitting)....
Sock number 1 is ....A Jaywalker.... Loved knitting it but go sidetracked....
Knit in a Berocco Sock yarn that is perfect for JayWalkers! Going to get more in with the next order! See the ball? That will be a sock next time you see it!
These next ones are BLACK and BORING ...yup that is my excuse...2 years in knitting..Would have fit my son when started....NOW they are for me. Lesson learned...I will never ever knitting plain st st black socks ever again! I just do not have the attention span. Will probably be my January sock just to get it off my UFO list. Yes the black blob in the middle of the photo is a sock.
The last pair I have to finish are a pair of Fair Isle Knee Highs I started for my friend Jen. Did one and it seemed small so I got her to try it on. Yes way too small... Into the frog pond and start again. Waaaaa... It was decided last week that knee high socks count as 4 socks so this should take me through 4 months.... blarg...
So that is my next 6 months of puyskal (Pull Up Your Socks Knit a Long).
