We are so pleased to include a tutorial, featuring Jody Campbell (aka Grannyknits4U), to share some tips and techniques on jogless striping for our Snow Shoe socks!
Jody began knitting at a young age and, without giving too much away, that means she has over 50 years of incredible experience under her belt. As a very young grandma, she was nicknamed “Granny” by her daughters as a gag (thinking she wouldn’t like it), but it stuck and 30 years later you will find folks young and old calling her Granny everywhere she goes. She has had the opportunity to attend knitting classes and events worldwide and has amassed a library of knowledge that she happily shares with others.
As a longtime Plucky friend and a prolific knitter, she has been invaluable with technical help if needed or when one of us on the Plucky team is looking to learn a new skill. We hope you will enjoy this video tutorial on Jogless Stripes plus a few more tips and tricks from Jody for the perfect socks!
