Why knit socks? Hand knit socks are warm, cozy, customizable and unique. You can make socks using some of the wonderful colorful yarns and will have footwear that is truly one of a kind! And best of all, they are not as hard as you may think! If you can knit, purl, cast on and bind off, you can learn to make socks, too! We will talk about working socks from the top down and from the toe up. You will need about 4 ounces of worsted weight wool or acrylic yarn, and size 7 needles (either a set of double point needles or two circular needles or one 40 inch long circular needle), or whatever size will give you a gauge of 5 stitches to the inch with your yarn. Don’t know what that is? We’ll talk about it during the first session. The sock knitting techniques we will talk about can also be used in many different types of knitting projects. Instructor will provide the patterns.
