Two at a Time Toe-Up Socks

Know how to knit but terrified at the concept of creating a sock on circular needles, never mind trying to make two socks at the same time? I too felt this fear but after taking that leap myself I quickly learned to enjoy the process of sock knitting and now it’s your turn! 

This workshop is split into two sessions, the first focussing on casting on your two socks using the magic loop technique and increasing the toe sections and the second walking you through the not-to-be-dreaded heel turns (with a week in between to knit the body of your socks, yes you will have homework!)

Circular needle and a wide selection of beautiful hand dyed yarns to keep provided as well as waste yarn to practice the technique before diving in!

Basic knowledge of knit and purls stitches and increase/decrease required. Please advise in advance if you have an allergy to natural wool fibres or lanolin. 

ALSO AVAILABLE! If you wish to bring along your own sock yarn (high twist 4ply, fingering or sock weight yarn with nylon blend – split into two even 50g balls) and 2.25mm circular needles (with at LEAST 80cm cable) you may do so for a discounted rate of £35pp! 

POSTPONED DUE TO FAMILY BEREAVEMENT 

Learn to Knit Basic Cables

Love the look of Aran jumpers but can’t get your head around cable needles? Pop along for a crash course on reading and knitting basic cables and take the mystery out of the gansey! 
This evening class will have you creating your own cabled swatch in no time, all materials provided as well as complimentary tea and biscuits.
