Taking Socks to the Next Level

The latest graduates of Soul Spun's Sock Knitting class (a two-part session taught by Judy on October 25 and November 12) have produced some beautiful treasures. The results include a fabulous Christmas stocking and several pairs of super cozy socks.

Sock knitting is fun, and much easier than it might look to those who are checking it out for the first time! Check out the Soul Spun Yarn course listing on the store's website for the next class on this topic.

Meanwhile, for those who have already knit pair after pair of fun stripey socks, it's time to expand your skills. Check out this fun Socks 102 article from Knitty.

Great Beanie Pattern!

So by now we can all tell I'm a little obsessed with They have so many great patterns. Ribbed beanies are great because they stretch to fit and keep their shape over time.

Sit Back, Knit and Relax

With the holiday season right around the corner, stress levels are climbing. But there's one type of holiday gift-giving that has all the relaxing benefits of a trip to the spa -- KNITTING.

We've all heard how knitting is the new yoga, but did you know that knitting can also relieve stress?

So make your wish list of perfect knitted gifts for friends and family, and visit Soul Spun Yarn for a break from holiday madness!

Get Out The Yarn and Needles I Feel A Chill In the Air ! ! !

Welcome to Soul Spun's first blog....

Most knitters will say that Fall is their favorite time of year, me too, me too!
Who could blame us. The weather starts to cool and there is an immediate urge to spend some time in our favorite yarn shop gathering ideas and yarns to take home with us and knit into 'some kind of wonderful' (all thoughts lead to lyrcis from old 70's songs - my mom was a hippy what can i say - it's in the system).
