Fingers and toes

We have been having great fun with our 'Socks Socks Socks!' workshops: new friends, plenty of laughs, not to mention indulgent cakes...

In fact the workshops have proved so popular that we will be scheduling more for June!

The new Opal Rendez-vous rangeJust in time to perfect your skills ready for the new Opal Rendez-vous range, which is due to arrive in July.

We love our socks! Who wouldn't? What could be more fun than knitting and wearing cosy socks in funky yarns from Opal, Noro, Grignasco ... ?

Well, maybe knitting and wearing fingerless gloves!

If you'd like to learn something new, why not enroll in one of our 'Fingerless Gloves' workshops? We'll show you how to make one of this season's most popular accessories, with a simple cable pattern for beginners.

Keep an eye on our website, or subscribe to this blog for the latest news on workshop dates and Opal availability.

'Socks Socks Socks!' workshops

Have you been drooling over the lovely Opal and Noro sock yarns available to buy online on our Socks page?

Are you nervous about using four needles?
Uncertain how to turn a heel?
Worried that you won't end up with a matching pair?

Then why not enroll in one of our 'Socks Socks Socks' workshops? Throughout May we'll be running three-hour classes in our cosy instore knitting room in Bowral. We'll teach you all the techniques you need, and supply you with a delightful morning tea.

Materials aren't included in the cost of the class, so you can choose yarns and needles instore before the workshop starts, or even bring something from your stash!

The cost is $60 - excluding materials, but including morning tea.

To book your place in a class, or for more information, please email us, or call Jill on 02 4862 4799.
