Welcome to the Knitalong
Welcome to your August 2022 Toe-Up Socks Knitalong! We are going to have so much fun knitting socks together.
Your Imagiknit discount code is KFSOCKKAL2022.
We officially start on Monday, August 1st, but in case you wanted to get started as soon as possible, here's an advance look at what's coming.
Before you start knitting your socks, there are a few things to get ready.
You'll want to choose which pattern you are going to knit and get your materials ready, including making a gauge swatch to make sure you're knitting with the right size needles. You'll also practice Magic Loop with some scrap yarn if you are not yet comfortable with the technique.
But don't panic! This is all part of the knitalong and I'll be sending you emails on these topics starting August 1st and ending in the middle of the month. Then we'll start knitting.
If you want to work ahead, here are links to the lessons I've put together walking you through these topics.
Lesson 2: Here is an overview of the pattern choices we have and how to choose the right pattern for you.
Lesson 3: Here is information on what materials to get and how to get a discount on them.
Lesson 4: Here is where you can learn about practicing Magic Loop and checking your gauge.
Lesson 5: Here is where you'll measure your foot and choose which size sock to knit.
Lesson 6: Here is where you can ask questions ahead of schedule in case you can't wait to get started.
We will start knitting around August 15th, so you have PLENTY of time to order supplies, experiment with your yarn, make sure your needles are the right size, and make any changes needed. This is a low-pressure knitalong!
