Sock Class

I am so excited! I'm going to be teaching my very first knitting class next month! It is a beginner sock class, just a plain cuff down sock using Opal yarn. I will be teaching at a shop called P is for Primitive, which is where I also took the beginner rug hooking class with Rissa and Cynthia. I will be teaching over three sessions two weeks apart - the first session we will cast on (which can be intimidating sometimes when you are casting on with all those double points for the first time) and start the leg, the second session we will do the heel flap and the third session will be the toe and kitchener stitch, and we can also cast on for the second sock during that session. I am really looking forward to it.

I am knitting up a sample sock for the class out of Opal Frosch, which is the blue frog colorway. Here is my progress so far. I want to finish it this week so I can take it to the shop to hopefully help attact attention to the class. :o)

I have weenie southern dogs. Our temp dropped to 26 or so last night, and we have a beautiful hard frost on the ground. My thin blooded weenie house dogs stuck their nose outside and promptly returned to bed. I had to pick them up and tote them outside so they would reluctantly do their business. Currently, they are all back in bed under the covers with my husband. Sad, so sad.

No, what is really sad is that I have to go in to work for a few hours. That just sucks. I don't know why they couldn't just let us be off today. We aren't going to do anything anyways! Of course, I could be mean and just refuse to go, after all, there isn't much they can do to me now that I have quit. LOL I am so ready for them to start interviewing to find someone to take my place!!

Good luck with the class it sounds great. I'm trying to knit my first sock at the moment from a pattern it would be great to have someone teach me in person. Sadly I live in England so it's a bit too far for me to travel to take your class myself :)

Woo hoo! I am so glad that you are teaching the class, although I am horrified that you will miss part of the workshop. LOL Give me the dates again and I will post it on my blog too...since some Jacksonians do read it!
