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!  *Note: Please be sure you are comfortable knitting small projects in the round, on double-pointed needles, before registering for this class.
