Socks are one of the funniest things in the world to make – and so portable!   Join us today to learn the basics of knitting a toe-up sock using Churchmouse Yarns & Teas Simple Toe-Up Sock pattern.   The other great pattern is the Basic Sock – also by Churchmouse.

If you have not knitted a sock before, we suggest that you start with a sport or DK weight yarn to make a heavier sock – but boy, it is great to see your stitches.   You will need 270 yds/247m of an equivalent DK- or sport-weight sock yarn and a US3 set of double pointed needles (or two circular needles).   Also bring along your basic knitting supplies (e.g, stitch markers).

You can also knit a great sock with worsted…perfect for a pair of house socks.   For these you will need a set of US5 double pointed needles or two circular needles.

There is no cost for the class if you purchase your yarn at our shop.  🙂   If you bring all your own supplies, a class fee of $15 will be charged.
