Nancy brings Kelie her finished I Heart Noro blanket, complete with border and good mojo!
Nancy's textile class started at FIDM on Monday. She's got next week off because of Martin Luther King Jr. holiday but is making sure the students keep busy.
We chat about lost knitting. Kelie decides to let go of a lost sock and make another sock to match a lonely one. The pattern she was using is Lucy Neatby's Social Network. It's a fun cabled colorwork sock made out of medium weight sock yarn.
Beginner classes are on Saturdays at Common Threads. Knitters and Crocheters are welcome!

Nancy’s Upcoming Project:
Heart Blanket by Noro – Join the upcoming knitalong hosted by Knitting Fever Inc., Noro’s American distributor. They have offered a coupon code for a free download of the heart blanket pattern on Ravelry if you buy the yarn for this project at your local yarn store. Common Threads has the code and is ready to use it! The Knitalong starts January 14, 2015, so if you’re thinking about this project, come on in. If you’re not sure about committing to the full blanket, try making a pillow instead.
