SoXperience 2015 will be on the beautiful Chincoteague Island, VA, the perfect location to do some serious knitting and then take breaks to enjoy the local scenery, and events the Island has to offer. Time has been allotted in the weekend for you to take advantage of the Assateague Wildlife Preserve (catch a glimpse of the legendary Chincoteague ponies) and the weekend wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Carodan Farm Wool Shop.
We have taught many phases of sock knitting over the years from beginning socks to socks with mitered designs to two socks at one time. This year we thought we would concentrate on heels, offering two different heel solutions which we have labeled Better Than the Basic. One heel was developed by the most creative Cat Bordhi, Sweet Tomato Heel, and the other, Fish Lips Kiss by Sox Therapist . Both of these heels promise to expand your understanding of heel construction and add new thoughts on how to obtain the right fit. Join us for this fun time of knitting incredible socks.
Melissa Abbott will be presenting the workshops. Attendees from previous knitting retreats have enjoyed her wit with down to earth instructions. Your pattern purchase for these two socks will be included in your registration fee of $90. Your registration fee includes the patterns and the entire weekend of workshops from Friday evening to Sunday lunch-time. SoXperience will be held in the Conference Room of the Hampton Inn & Suites. Make your lodging reservation directly with the Hampton Inn (757-336-1616).
A list of materials and homework will be supplied by April 1st.
Prerequisite: Must be familiar with knitting socks from either cuff down or toe up.
