Socks, Socks, Socks!

Hey Y'all,
Deb is teaching a sock class this coming Friday. One of the best classes I EVER took at HCW-- and I've taken countless fantastic classes there-- was this sock class. Deb was so patient with me-- I was so freaked out at the prospect of learning this Terrifying Heel Turning Thing I had heard so much about. Well guess what? It wasn't hard at all. To this day I knit lots of socks every year. I LOVE SOCKS! And, not that you need anymore incentive, but think about it-- knitting socks in summer rocks. They're nice and small so your lap doesn't get all sweaty, you know? So don't wait, call the store and reserve you sock slot now...
