What shall we call this sock I designed especially for my favorite local fiber event? I was thinking of the clear starry skies of a warm Maine evening and rosa rugosa which blooms by the sea; inspired by the gorgeous environs of Searsport Shores, a fantastic old fashioned campground on Penobscot Bay which is the setting for Fiber College.
I’m teaching this sock in my Fair Isle Sock class, we’ll tackle corrugated ribbing, working with two colors on double pointed needles, and an afterthought heel. I’ll also teach the rudiments of Fair Isle sock design, so students are free to design their own! The kind and generous folks at Knit Picks have donated all of the seven beautiful colors of Palette Yarn for each student’s sock kit. Wowee!
The raspberries are going wild this year, daring one to pass without a taste!
Thursday September 9th- Sunday September 12
Be sure to read the lively Fiber College Blog to learn more about this fun event.
I’m also teaching Styling Your Knits for Photography. Learn more on my Classes page.
