Safiyyah Talley – Knit 2 Socks in 1
Knit 2 Socks in 1 is a revolutionary sock method that eliminates second sock syndrome and all of the tedious parts of sock knitting. Your sock knitting adventure begins with knitting one long sock and putting lifelines (running scrap yarn through live stitches) for where you wish to separate your socks and place your heels. Then, using the lifelines as a safety net, you fearlessly cut your long sock in half making two socks. Lastly, you finish off both socks separately. It’s a fun, quick and easy way to knit socks without compromising fit, because all of the techniques used are traditional sock knitting methods that have been curated to create the perfect sock knitting experience.
Safiyyah is the author of the best selling book, “Knit 2 Socks in 1. She is also a knitwear designer, teacher, blogger and podcaster that works out of her home in scenic Indiana, USA. When she is not knitting, Safiyyah either spends her free time hiking with her photographer husband, her toddler son Beau, and chocolate lab, Arya, or enjoying the rural Indiana landscape with her two cats and angora rabbit.
The meeting will start with a 6:30 pm CT Trunk Show from Ruby and Roses. The main presentation will begin at 7:00pm CT.
