There are many methods to knitting socks.  Finding the right one that works for you will keep you a happy knitter which in turn keeps the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome at bay. 

 

In this class we are going to learn how to knit socks from the toe up which means you can try on your socks as you go or use up that whole skein of special yarn (or handspun).  We will quickly go over sock anatomy, measurements, sizing and designing.  We will discuss a couple different approaches to starting the toe so you find what works best for you.  Our focus will be the Fleegle Heel as it is a good fit, easy to customize and it will take all the fear out of a heel turn but we will touch on other heel choices.    We will end by casting off using Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy bind off. 

 

Feel free to use double pointed needles, magic loop or 9” circular’s in this class and we suggest finding a fun yarn that will keep you and your needles happy.  (Dye for Ewe self-striping, Cog Yarns & West Yorkshire Spinners sock yarn are great examples)
