Toe-Up Socks on two Circulars

Date: 
Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - 6:30pm to Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 8:00pm
Another approach to sock knitting!  Advantages to knitting your socks from the toe up include: easy to try on while your sock is still on the needles, less concern about running out of yarn (simply bind off when you run out of yarn), easier to adjust for a high instep, plus no pick-up along the edge of the heel flap!
 
Sock pattern will be provided by the instructor.  In this class, you will knit your sock on two circular needles. Four sessions included in this class: Mar 28, Apr 4, 11, 18.
