Big Sock Continues to Grow at Tempe Yarn

Progress continues at Tempe Yarn on the Big Sock as we've added 5 inches to the length of the sock over the weekend!

Karin Skacel from Skacel Yarns was in the shop this week to knit on the Big Sock.

While here, Karin Skacel donated ten bags of "Wonderful Wool" to
be used for the Big Sock, plus some great addi Turbo needles.

Many thanks to Skacel for helping make the Big Sock grow with it's yarn donation and needles.
Also a special thanks to Kim from RI who made initial contact with Skacel for this donation.
