The Garment Worker Center‘s Fair Trade Pop-Up Store offers beautiful items from Fair Trade cooperatives and local artisans, guaranteeing fair wages and healthy working environments to the workers who produce them as well as guilt-free gifts for socially conscious consumers. You’re socially conscious, aren’t you? Of course you are!

You better hurry, though, ‘cos the shop closes tomorrow at 9pm!

Another chance to learn sock knitting

Learn to make these!
Learn to make these!

Did you miss my sock knitting class back in July?

That’s cool – but if you still want to give it a try I’m doing another one.

I’m telling you, socks are SUPER easy if you use the Magic Loop technique, and since nobody left my last class crying or cursing, apparently I’m just the person to teach it to you.

This time it’s broken over two Sundays (hey it’s a lot to learn in one session), and again it’s at The Little Knittery in marvelous Atwater Village.

MAGIC LOOP CLASS $50: Learn to knit your first pair of socks using the Magic Loop. Class will also cover turning the heel, shaping the toe, and kitchener stitch bindoff. (2 Sundays).

October 19th and 26th, 12 – 2 p.m.

Reserve your space by email: knittery [at] thelittleknittery.com, or by phone: 323-663-3838.
