It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....Join us for this 3 session class.
If you've known us for a few years, you know that our favorite class is the Christmas Stocking Class. Nancy Lindberg's Christmas Sock pattern is the best. Our Nanny Jean would be happy. She was the Christmas Stocking knitter of the family. Every new member of the Doyle Clan earned a hand knit stocking from our Nan. Carly and I have now become the stocking makers and we couldn’t be prouder. She would be so happy we are carrying on her tradition.
We'll teach you a new technique, chart reading, stranded color work, afterthought heel, Finchley Graft.
