Socks are a popular and fun knitting project.  Small and portable with endless possibilities, socks can be as simple or as complex as the knitter chooses.    

This 2-session workshop explores the making of socks two at a time, from the toe up – using the Magic Loop technique.  We’ll also learn Judy’s Magic Cast-On and how to make an Afterthought Heel. 

Pattern: Pass the Maple Syrup by Melinda Measor (supplied with tuition)

Supplies:  US 1  circular needle,  40 – 42” or size needed to achieve 8 sts per inch.   Fingering weight yarn, about 400 yds.. This pattern would be great with a fun self-striping or other variegated yarn.  Pattern and yarns will be in stock at least two weeks before class.  

Homework: You should be comfortable knitting in the round, preferably with socks.  Please have yarn split into 2 roughly equal balls before class.
