Go-to Gift Slipper Socks with Vickie Howell
Hand-made gifts are perfect for the holiday season. These retro-inspired slipper socks make a great gift for friends, family, teachers, or office mates.
They're also the perfect project for learning how to knit socks! Vickie will show you how to negotiate double-pointed needles, knit a reinforced heel, turn a heel gusset, and work the basic, stranded color-work called for in the Go-To Gift Slipper Socks from her latest book, The Knit Vibe. You'll leave well on your way to progressing through your first sock, and feeling confident that you have the skills to quickly complete the pair!
Note: Must know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.
Yarns supplied by WEBS: Valley Yarns Valley Superwash Color by Vickie Howell. A copy of The Knit Vibe: A Knitter’s Guide to Creativity, Community, and Well-being for the Mind, Body and Soul will be included in the class.
