It’s here!

Today is the much anticipated release of Socks from the Toe Up: Essential Techniques and Patterns from Wendy Knits! I reviewed the book on the blog already, but now I have finished some socks!


Wendy is joining us at Charlotte Yarn June 4-6 for several events including book signings and classes! If you are in the area, come join us!


As part of her visit, I knit a pair of socks for the shop! Come by and see them in person if you would like!


Pattern: Riding on the Metro Socks by Wendy D. Johnson (Ravelry link)
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids in Ginger
Needles: Size 2 magic loop
Time: April 1 – April 10 (In that time I also finished 2 cowls and went to LA)


It is rare that I knit the same pattern twice, but I will be knitting this pair again! Probably right after I finish knitting these …

Butterfly Socks

Butterfly Socks – also in the new book – I started them on Saturday night…and finished this on Monday night!

The socks look great. I love the butterfly socks especially. I’m taking the class and looking forward to learning new things.

I love Wendy’s socks, but knitting the toe is my favorite part!

Thanks for the heads up that Wendy will be in town… will be sure to mark my calendar!
Great socks!

I will be a beginner. I’m so interested in getting started. After reading the best way to make socks, I want to learn to do the Magic Loop Method “toe up”. Are these instuctions included for each of the patterns in this book?
