We’re talking about all things sock related this week! To kick off the Sock Yarn Sale happening now, Knit Picks staff members Alena and Jen join hosts Lee and Stacey for a sock knitting round table discussion. Producer Andi plays the moderator and asks the hard hitting questions, like toe up or cuff down and how to care for socks. Everyone also shares their favorite sock yarn, on sale now, and their favorite pattern(s) from our latest sock collection, Pop Socks.
