Denise's NeedleWorks
Location: Ames, Iowa, United States

I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

I joined Soctoberfest . I don't do very many of the knit alongs but I thought I could handle this one after seeing this in the information:

"if you plan on even looking at your sock needles this month, join up!"

Hey, I can do that! Do Christmas stockings count?

I have a lonely sock that I started way back in March or April when the weather was still a little cool. I turned the heel on it finally earlier this month. Since it is going to get really cold here soon... and I could really use more wool socks... I am hoping that Soctoberfest will get me thinking about knitting socks know, the kind that go on your feet? Instead of the really big ones that I have been making so many of lately!
