I’m hosting my first KAL! The Kate Atherley book has me inspired to knit EVEN MORE Socks. I wanted everyone to have plenty of time, so instead of just Socktober, I’m starting early in Socktember! I’ve started a chat thread on the Ravelry group, along with a thread to post your FOs. One entry per FO! Or post your FO photos on Instagram, using the hashtags #knitactuallypodcast and #kapsocktober. I have 3 sock patterns published on Ravelry, so if you want to knit any of those socks use coupon code SOCKTOBER for $2.00 off!
o I have some AMAZING sponsors lined up who are donating some lovely prizes!
