On Monday 21st November 2016 (at 8pm GMT,London) I am going to be hosting the first of my monthly Twitter Chats aimed at everyone who loves to knit socks - and I know there are a few of you out there.
So far so good, but what exactly is a Twitter Chat, I hear you say.
Well, fear not. It isn't scary. It is just a bunch of people chatting on Twitter but instead of randomly chatting amongst ourselves we use the hashtag #KnitSockChat. This enables us to see all the conversations going on around us and to join in and hopefully make new friends who share our love of all things to do with knitting socks.
Most Twitter Chats last for an hour but don't worry - it's fine to dip in and out as you can. Most of us have other things going on in the evening - small people, pets or significant others clamoring for attention - but the beauty of Twitter is that you can join in as it suits you and no one will be offended if you bow out. Or if you are can't to join in at the time you can catch up with the conversations later and find out what you missed.
To give us something to get us started I will post 3 questions or topics during the chat:
Q1: Show us a picture of your favourite knitted socks or sock WIP. What do you love about them?
Q2: Patterned socks or plain vanilla?
Q3: Do you knit for others or just you?
To help you get the most out of the Chat it helps to remember to use the hashtag #KnitSockChat on each of your posts - this will help everyone else to find you. And also if you answering a specific question, preface your comment with Q1, 2 or 3.
With these simple guides in mind, grab a beverage of choice and join us for some serious sock chat.
I look forward to seeing you there
