Invitation to join the Summer Sock Knitting Club 2023
Summer is finally here! With warmer weather and longer days, we are spending more time outside, travelling and visiting friends and family.
As makers, our need for creativity means that we all love to keep our hands busy no matter where we are.
If you are looking for a fun and portable summer project, we highly recommend that you give sock knitting a go! All you need is a set of knitting needles, and a skein of yarn. This is a project that can fit easily in your purse, and versatile enough for a few quick minutes of knitting, or hours of peaceful, quiet knitting. This means that you can knit pretty much anywhere, in the car, on a plane, in your backyard, at the park, beach, on the bus.. You get the idea.
Never knit socks before? Veteran sock knitter but would love to have a community to hang out in and discuss all things socks? Join Mimi’s first annual Summer Sock Knitting Club on Facebook, where you can hang out with other sock knitters, and enjoy a fun summer of sock knitting.
Who should join this event?
We invite knitters of all levels to join. Whether you have never knit a sock, or are a seasoned pro, we are looking forward to offering everyone an enjoyable community of sock knitting for the summer months.
What exciting events do we have planned for the group?
Meet and Greet - you will meet other like-minded #mimimakers to chat and explore this craft with.
Getting Ready - we will help you get all your supplies ready for a summer full of knitting socks.
Learning Opportunities - we will discuss needles, yarn, patterns and techniques for all levels of knitting.
Inspiration - you will have the opportunity to inspire and be inspired by other makers’ beautiful creations
When is it happening?
The group is already running, and you can join the group here and begin to get to know other makers in the group.
Over the course of June we will help everyone to get ready with supplies, pattern selection and be available to answer questions and provide guidance in all things sock knitting.
July and August will be the main knitting months where everyone will be able to share their progress, ask questions and help each other out.
We will also provide some tips and tricks as well as introduce various techniques for all knitters to try.
At the end of August the group will be closed but you will still be able to access all the information from this group at any time if you want to continue to use it as a reference tool.
Time to head over to the group and get started! We look forward to seeing you there.
