Speaker: Charles Gandy

Charles Gandy, a TKGA Master Knitter, learned to knit at the young age of four from his mother, a designer and shop owner. He designed his first sweater three years later and continues to create today. A two-time winner in Knitter's Magazine "Think Outside the Sox" contest, three of his designs are featured in the book of the same name: "Dread Sox", "Snake in the Grass" and "Pedicure Polka Socks". His own book, "The Embellished Sock: Knitted Art for the Foot" features eighteen creative sock patterns and numerous techniques and is available in yarn shops nationwide. REGIA Yarns commissioned two collections: “Crazy Socks” and “More Crazy Socks” which were published in six languages worldwide. His other designs are widely published in leading magazines and on ravelry.com. The Bascom: A Center for the Arts in Highlands, NC recently hosted his one-person exhibit of 25 knitted sculptural pieces: “Beyond the Sock”. Gandy, a popular speaker and workshop leader, is frequently featured at seminars and conferences nationwide.
