Sock Basics

If you’ve ever looked at a pair of hand knit socks and wondered how they were made, this is the class for you!  In this class you will learn how to make a basic sock and how to use this knowledge to make any sock there is!  By making a toddler sized sock, participants will learn how to turn a heel and create the toe of the sock, all while completing a quick project. Be warned, sock knitting can be highly addictive!
