Build your own boat and timber frame your own home - so why not knit your own socks? After all, "you can't go barefoot," as your mom used to say. In this day-long introduction to knitting socks, you’ll be on your way to making your own socks for the rest of your life. Learn the skills to make socks, including reading knitting patterns, circular knitting on double point needles, shaping the heel and shaping and closing the toe. You start on a model sock and are encouraged to bring a sock pattern you would like to make in the future. The instructor will guide you through these sometimes daunting instructions.
