Unfortunately, Big Foot Knits with Andi Smith had to be cancelled this semester.
Are you tired of knitting socks that fall down, stretch out of shape or just don't seem to fit correctly? Then this is the class for you! Whether you're a top-down or toe-up knitter, a magic loop, 2 circs or dpn devote, Andi will teach you how to create a custom sock pattern to perfectly fit your tootsies. From measuring and math to worksheets and charts, you'll learn the basics to custom fitted socks. From a plain vanilla to intricate lace, the methods taught can be used in all flavors of sock.
