Side Hustle Socks

On Friday, November 30, Close Knit will host the Side Hustle Socksters for a sock machine party!
For $20, you can have a skein of sock yarn cranked into a stockinette stitch tube, ready for you to knit afterthought heels, toes, and cuffs. This will speed up holiday gift knitting (or selfish chilly weather knitting) while still allowing you the fun of knitting with some lovely sock yarn.
With your yarn cranking, the Socksters will include their own pattern for afterthought toes and heels (with a great trick to avoid holes when picking up stitches for the heel), including a photo tutorial.
Close Knit will be open for shopping and sock cranking from 5-8 PM. Priority for on-the-spot cranking will be given to yarn purchased at Close Knit that evening, but you can also bring your own sock yarn to be cranked later in the week and picked up. There will even be a discount on sock yarn during the party!
Emily will be offering a class on after-thought toes and heels in December in case you'd like some guidance as you finish those tubes into socks!
