COOPKNITS SOCKS live at Marmalade Yarns.

Rachel Coopey will be at Marmalade Yarns
Thursday 18th July
6.30pm - 8.30pm


As you know sock knitting is a bit obsessional.
There is nothing better than casting on an exciting new sock pattern, other than grafting the second toe and slipping on the finished pair....

Rachel has just published her first book which is a must have for any sock knitter:

'Coop Knits Socks is the first printed collection of Rachel's original sock designs. These well-written patterns are accompanied by exquisite photography by Jesse Wilde, as well as step-by-step tutorials for techniques such as Kitchener Stitch and Afterthought Heels.

Many of the clearly written patterns use a variety of skills, including cabling, grafting, lace and twisted stitches and provide a great opportunity to try out new stitch patterns.

Each design is beautifully balanced and well thought-out, giving both experienced and novice knitters the chance to create socks that are beautiful and wearable, while being enormously enjoyable to knit.'

The recent variety of exciting sock yarns available is a constant temptation (as my personal stash is proof) and only adds to the whole joy of being a sock addict.

So if you too are afflicted by the sock knitting bug then you will be very excited by the news  that Rachel Coopey will be at Marmalade Yarns on Thursday 18th July.

There will be drinks and nibbles and sock adoration.

Rachel will be able to answer an sock questions and sign some books.

Please come along and bring any socks you are knitting or are particularly proud of.

See you there.
