477-6 Intermediate Twined Textured Socks Learn the Swedish technique of Tvaandsstickning, or Twined knitting by knitting a small sock using worsted weight yarn. Twined knitting often is worked with two yarns of the same color, twined around each other to create a dense, warm, and durable fabric. The sock is worked circularly on double-pointed needles (although you may use two circulars or Magic Loop if you prefer) and includes many techniques: a Twined Knitting cast-on, reading and working from a chart, the "O" stitch, the crook stitch, Chain Path, a traditional motif for the leg, and an unusual method of working the afterthought heel.
Note: Must be proficient with double-pointed needles, two circulars or Magic Loop.

443-6 Intermediate Fair Isle Tams This Fair Isle class is for knitters who would like to venture into two-color knitting but haven't had the chance. A small tam comprised of ribbing, a border pattern area, and the wheel area will be knitted on double points or a circular needle, in four colors, although never more than two in a round. Techniques included in the workshop are: knitting with a color in each hand, weaving yarns to reduce snagging, reading tam charts, knitting traditional peerie, border, and wheel patterns, and shaping and finishing of the tam. The class will end with a discussion of designing a tam.
Note: Must be proficient with double-pointed needles, two circulars or Magic Loop.
