We are so excited to have been invited to join this project! The Astronauts in the International Space Station do not wear shoes and their feet get cold! They use metal bars and velcro strips to anchor their bodies and keep from floating around while they are working, eating, etc. A knitter in Washington named Penny found out there was a need for hand-knit socks. (I mean really, who wants to see our astonauts in Walmart socks?) So I have checked out the program and we have started a forum on Ravelry called Astrosocks where all your questions can be answered.
We are currently knitting for Expedition 42 and the socks need to be TO NASA before Thanksgiving.
Information on each astronaut (shoe size, color preference) can be found on our Ravelry Forum also called Astrosocks!

Please join us on Thursday night, December 13th, from 6 to 9 for a party to Thank everyone for such a great year! All of our teachers will be here for you to talk to and let them know what kinds of classes you want us to hold. We have the schedule done for the first three months and now we need some ideas. Ana is going to start up her Six Months to Mastery Class again this Spring and we're going to have another Color Theory Class - once you see the swatches from both of those classes you'll see why both classes were so popular.
We'll have door prizes! We'll have goodybags! We'll have a big secret sale from 6 to 9 and lots of hot apple cider and cookies for everyone!
Thursday is the last night for us to collect all the things we need for our family from Saint Louise House - remember we have an 8 year old little girl and a 17 year old young man and they really just asked for gift cards from Target but we're also collecting recipes for Crock-Pot meals to go with the Crock-Pot the mom asked for and we need stocking stuffers for the kids! Help!!
