It's time for a knit-along with Marly Bird! We'll be knitting an original design My First Socks with Marly Bird. The socks are made using Red Heart Chic Sheep by Marly Bird. The 100% Merino wool comes in 24 stunning colors and is sooo soft you’ll never want to take these socks off. Every Wednesday for six weeks starting March 28 you'll receive a video tutorial from Marly to follow along with the written pattern and knit the socks. Use the hashtag #MarlyBirdKAL to share your projects! A knit-along, or KAL, is a group of people coming together to knit the same project in the same timeframe. If you start late or knit slower, that’s OK! All of the material will stay available for free right here.
