    The Resoleable Elizabeth Zimmermann Sock

    How many knitters have wept to see their handknit socks sprout holes too big to mend, or spent hours darning the soles of favorites? Elizabeth Zimmermann created a surprising way around that heartache and this class will share her secrets. The resolable socks are made on straight and circular needles in a way that allows you to remove the entire sole when worn through and simply knit on a new one! You can even change the sole color the second time around. Worked from the cuff down, this pair of socks works up quickly using EZ's novel shaping.
