4082 Intermediate Downside Up Socks Turn tradition on its head! Use 2 circular needles to knit a sock from the toe up.

Friday 8:30 am - 11:30 am
5245 Intermediate Kick Up Your Heels! Tube socks are out of style. Add some heel options to your sock-knitting skill set! Work a traditional sock heel from the top down and from the toe up, without those annoying holes at the corners. Insert a short-row heel into your sock-in-progress or add it later as an afterthought. Also included: a discussion of different heel-flap stitch patterns and reinforcement options.
Friday 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm     SOLD OUT

Practice knitting in the round with 2 colors while trapping those pesky floats. Discover the beauty of corrugated ribbing. Hold your breath while you cut open a steek. There's nothing to it. What are you waiting for?
