Turn a Heel & knitting circle: Michelle Montjoy

Michelle Montjoy: Turn a Heel, and knitting circle

Michelle will teach you how to knit a sock with double pointed needles, including the “turning a heel” trick.  She will have lots of materials but bring your own if you have them. She will also be starting a knitting circle time at To Do, so if you have a knitting project and want to sit with others while you knit please stop by or let us know what times are good for you.
