Sock School With Cookie A!

I keep forgetting to mention some more big news: I'm taking a toe-up sock class with Cookie A this weekend!  She'll be in Chicago for three days of Sock class awesomeness with the Windy City Knitting Guild.  Though I'd like to take a few more classes (or even the whole shebang), I had to choose just one, so I decided to take the socks from the toe up class on Sunday. Though I've knit a few pairs of toe-up socks successfully, I wouldn't say that I've made friends with them by any stretch of the imagination, so I'm excited to learn Cookie's tips and tricks for happy toe-up sock knitting.

Last year, I'd signed on for a Cookie A class with the WCKG, but she had a family emergency that required her to head back to Thailand and the classes were canceled.  Needless to say, it's been a long time coming, but some things are worth waiting for!  I'm very excited for this weekend - this will be my first formal knitting class, actually.  Hopefully I can get some good photos or share a few plum tips next week!

    1. Though I feel quite lucky to be taking this class, I have to admit that I'm jealous of those who get to take more than one! Nevertheless, I will definitely give a full report next week!
