Crochet Socks

There's a lot of knitting on this blog, and crochet often gets the shaft. But Suzanne is doing her best to remedy the situation.

She has taught a lot of classes at the Knit Nook, mostly our Beginning Crochet on Saturdays, but also spinning and even some knitting classes too. This month, she taught her first Crochet Socks class. And I have a feeling, it's just the beginning.

Keith took the class and well within the three weeks, he finished his first pair of socks. They are made out of All Season's Cotton (I want to say three skeins, but I am really just making up that number) and a D hook. Keith defies convention by proving that just because you crochet, and just because you're a man, doesn't mean you can't make a pair of kick ass socks! Excellent job, Keith! And thanks for sending the pictures.

If you would like to learn how to crochet your own socks, don't wait until fall for the next class. Call or email us and Suzanne can get you hooked up. (Ha! Ha! My wit astounds me!)

Keith; GREAT JOB ON THE SOCKS ! (I love the mermaid you crocheted too!)

Suzanne; GREAT TEACHER ! You're the best ! I am going to get you to teach me to spin ... I am sure if I can learn from anyone it will be you.
