September 8, 2017 –
The team at Churchmouse Yarns & Teas designed these one-skein slipper-socks for the 2009 LYS Tour. They make great gifts as they’re easy to fit and don’t take a lot of yarn. They’re nice for around the house and terrific for travel. The staff there loves to wear them with clogs. These little foot warmers make great gifts as they’re one-skein projects. This 2-session class will taught by Yarnista & Owner Susan Dickerson and will be held 3 to 5 pm Saturdays, Aug. 5 & 19; and 1 to 3 pm Fridays, Sept. 8 & 15.
