CHARLES D. GANDY, a The Knitting Guild Association (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 patterns and numerous techniques and is available in yarn shops nationwide.  His latest collections “Crazy Socks” and “MORE Crazy Socks” for REGIA Yarns have been received worldwide. Numerous other designs are widely published in leading magazines, book, and on Ravelry.  He is a popular teacher at workshops and conferences nationwide.  His most recent work, BEYOND THE SOCK, was an overwhelming success at The Bascom, A Center for The Arts in Highlands, NC that was on display from March 12 – June 12, 2016.  His work placed as a semi-finalist in the 28th Annual World of Wearable Art in Wellington, New Zealand and later was on display at the 7th Wearable Expressions at the Palos Verdes Art Center in California.
