Socks 101 with Charles Gandy
Have you avoided knitting socks, thinking they might be too difficult? Or, are you frightened about those “scary” double point needles? Then this is the class for you. While you make a mini-sock (perfect for a holiday ornament!) We will investigate the basic “anatomy” of a sock, equipping you with knowledge and confidence so you can make your own socks without referring to a pattern. We will explore plenty of tricks and tips to take the fear out of working with DPNs (double point needles). We will even learn an easy way to do the never-can-remember “Kitchener Stitch.”
1 set DPNs in 4, 4.5 or 5mm/US 6, 7, or 8 and 1 skein #4 (worsted weight) yarn in a neutral color
