Coming in September — Sock September!!
What is it?
It is a whole month of sock-related videos on my YouTube channel, accompanying tutorial patterns here on my blog, and a KAL with a new sock pattern released late August.
How can you participate?
You can subscribe to my YouTube channel and hit the notification bell to get a notice each time a new video is released. Watch and comment! I love hearing from you. My LiveStream on 9/13 will be all about socks! If you have a sock knitting related question you’d like me to address during the LiveStream, send it in advance!
You can subscribe to my blog here – and then you will get a notice each time a new blog post goes up. The blog posts accompanying each video will be released at the same time as the video. And play along with the tutorial patterns as the month goes on! This year we are focusing on sock heels, so there will be a homework post on August 31st, and then each new sock heel will have a tutorial pattern to go along with it.
Try the sock tutorials out, and share with me – either in comments on the YouTube video, in comments in the blog posts, by email, and/or via social media, using the hashtags #hssocksept2022 and #hssockseptember.
Buy my sock KAL pattern (coming later in August), and knit along with me! Share your progress with me here, via email, and/or on social media with the hashtag #upanddownarrowssocks. For this pattern you will need two contrasting colors of sock weight yarn; one can be a gradient or a self-striping yarn. The pattern will accommodate a variety of sizes, and will be written for toe-up and cuff-down knitting. (Sizing and gauge info will be available prior to purchase.) (And shhh, but newsletter subscribers will receive a hefty discount code, so be sure to subscribe to my newsletter before August 30th!)
Because it will be fun! Sock knitting is fun!
Community – join fellow sock knitting lovers in learning about different sock heels and in knitting socks and/or the tutorial patterns. You don’t have to knit my sock KAL pattern, either; knit any sock pattern you like and share with us during September! I’d love to see your socks! You can share here in comments here on my blog, in comments on my IG or Facebook posts, and/or on IG with your own posts and tagging me and/or using the hashtags!
And I just might have some random prizes to award all during the month of September. Keep an eye on this blog and my Instagram account for details throughout September.
I hope you’ll join me!!
