Old School Cuff-to-toe Socks with Sarah Peasley
Plain old vanilla socks may sound boring, but traditional, cuff-down, heel-flap socks are an excellent first sock project, an ideal choice for on-the-go knitting, and a great way to connect to knitters of yore (although sock yarn is WAY more fun now than it used to be!). Use double-pointed needles to knit a sock from the cuff down. Start with a ribbed cuff, turn a perfect heel (without that pesky hole at the corner!), and finish with a round toe. You'll make a mini sock in class, but you'll leave with the information needed to make your own custom-fit cuff-down socks!
