Socks 101

Learn how to make top-down socks on double-pointed needles. Starting with a mini “training sock”, we teach you everything you need to know to knit socks - from working in the round to turning the heel to shaping the toe. Once you’ve mastered the mini, we’ll provide patterns and yarn recommendations for you to get started on your first pair of socks. Along the way, we share lots of tips and techniques, including easy ways to join the round – without twisting! -- handling the gusset pickup, and a beginner-friendly no-graft toe. If you’ve not made socks before, this is the class for you. I also demonstrate Magic Loop and patterns provided permit use of both DPNs and magic loop.


SKILL LEVEL: advanced beginner/intermediate - knitters must be comfortable with knit, purl, ribbing and decreasing; some experience working in the round is preferable but not absolutely required
MATERIALS REQUIRED: 4 or 4.5mm/US #6-7 DPNs and scrap medium-weight yarn in a light colour

Cost: $65 (yarn included)

Mittens 101

Mittens are not only a key winter wardrobe item, and a great gift, but they're also a terrific way to learn some new knitting skills. This class takes knitters through a mini "training" mitten – a classic cuff-up mitt with gusseted thumb – so that they can learn everything they need about making mitts in a short amount of time. Once you’ve mastered the mini, we’ll provide patterns and yarn recommendations for you to get started on a pair of quick-knit, fun to knit mittens – just in time for the gift-giving season! Along the way, we share lots of tips and techniques, including easy ways to join the round – without twisting, and ways to solve problems and make the process quick and easy! We’ll also talk about how to make fingerless versions, and other style and fit customizations.
