Here at Avicraft Wool we have decided to make sure our feet are warm this winter by renaming October Socktober and knitting socks all month long! Woolly socks, lacy socks, stripy socks, colourful socks, basically any handmade socks! Whether you have knitted many socks, or you would like to knit your first, we would love for you to join us.
We will be running a Beginners Sock Knitting course, starting on Friday 21 Socktober with two time slots - the daytime course which will run from 10am-12:30pm, and an evening course, from 7-9:30pm. Places are limited so book early by popping in or ringing the shop.
We will also be running Save Our Socks sessions throughout the month where you can bring in socks that are languishing half done for help to get going again. Got stuck doing the heel flap? Dropped stitches? Pattern instructions not making sense? Bring them in to the shop during any morning in Socktober and lets see if we can get them finished!
There will also be a 10% discount on sock yarn throughout the month so you can treat yourself to warm feet more affordably! We have many different colours and styles of sock yarn, as well as patterns in store now!
