Don't bind off, we will use this during the class. Also bring 2 swatches of garter stitch & 2 swatches of stockinette so that we can seam them together.
Sock Knitting 101 - $40 - 4 Hours - Instructor: Jen Reeves

Sock knitting is a great year round project...and they make great gifts too! During this class we will learn the construction of socks by using worsted weight yarn and larger needles than you would traditionally use for socks (they turn out to be more like house slippers!) but this way you get a project that works up fast and is a little easier to see what you are doing.
You will need: 3.5oz/180 yards Worsted Weight Yarn and US7 double pointed needles. If you would like to use the Magic Loop Method to create your socks, you will need US7-32" or 40" circular knitting needle.
