- A Night Out With Socks!
Do you want to take your sock knitting to the next level?
Join Clare Devine and Jessica James for a fabulous evening of sock knitting. Hosted in a stunning historic manse in Edinburgh. You will be treated to an evening workshop by Clare Devine and will have plenty of time for sock knit chat with knitters who love socks as much as you do. This relaxed evening will allow for a unique learning and socialising evening, the perfect way to end the first day of the Indie-burgh Yarn Crawl.
What will be happening during the evening?
Clare will be giving two short talks about creating the perfect socks for your foot shape and adjusting patterns to suit you.
The evening will be packed with hints and tips, practical demonstrations and plenty of time to ask questions about your sock knitting adventures to date and beyond. You will be provided with comprehensive notes to take home too.
There will be an informal Q&A session where you can chat to Clare and other knitters about sock related knitting questions. Clare will also be happy to look at your WIPS and help where she can.
Most importantly the evening will be a relaxed affair with plenty of time to knit and socialise.
Clare and Jess have created a unique kit for those attending the workshop; including a gorgeous skein of Ginger’s Hand Dyed, in an exclusive colourway, and a sock pattern by Clare Devine. This exclusive kit is an optional extra.
In addition to great sock chat and exceptional company there will be bubbles, light nibbles, tea and Manna House Bakery cakes to keep you going throughout the evening.
Saturday 13th June; 6.30pm – 9pm
All workshops can be purchased from Ginger Twist Studio in person OR in the online shop
