Socks from the Toe Up - January 2010

By popular demand, our resident expert, Rhonda, will be teaching socks from the toe-up in January.

To enroll in this class, you should already be comfortable with the basics (knit/purl, circular knitting, increase/decrease). You do not need to be familiar with sock-knitting.

Registration: Come in or email to reserve your space in class. Advance payment is required. Refunds available only if we are able to fill your space in the class.

Cost: $54 for three 2hr sessions ($74 if yarn is purchased elsewhere)

Schedule: The Sock Knitting Class will be held on three consecutive Saturdays from 1-3pm starting January 16th.

Jan 16th: Intro to toe-up socks, casting on, making the toe
Jan 23rd: Gusset and heel turn
Jan 30th: Finishing, additional questions, 2nd sock help

You will learn:
Magic Loop Method
Figure 8 cast-on
Heel Turn
Toe Increase

Limit: 7 students, advance registration is required (classes will be canceled and all fees refunded if we do not have at least 3 students signed up).

  • Sock yarn (enough to make 2 socks -- for most sock yarns this is one 100g skein)
  • Size 2 circular knitting needle, either 32" or 40"(if you plan on doing 2 socks at once in the future go with the longer 40" cord)
  • Darning needle
  • Stitch markers
