Do you love to knit socks? Are you looking for ways to make sock knitting even better? This class will show you ways to cast on and bind off that will take your socks to a new level. Need a stretchy cast-on or bind-off for the top of your socks? We'll learn them! What about easy ways to start a toe-up sock? Got that, too!
