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. 

All workshops will take place in the Knit’n’Natter room within the shop, there is limited parking to the rear of the premises available on a first-come basis.

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!

Beautiful Brioche Workshop with Katherine Lymer

Join the wonderful Katherine Lymer of ‘Knitting with Katherine’ for this full day workshop creating your own brioche beanie!

After the roaring success of Katherine’s previous workshop which took place on Yarn Shop Day I have invited her back to the shop for another class for those of you who missed it the first time round! This is a full day class with all equipment and materials provided as well as a light lunch, tea and copious amounts of cake to keep you going!

 

Brioche knitting is form of tuck-stitch knitting, resulting in a wonderfully textured and squishy fabric that is as beautiful to view as it is to touch.


During this workshop, we will learn how to combine yarn overs, slipped stitches and the unique language of Brioche knitting to create different Brioche stitches. Once confident in the basics, we’ll apply our newly learnt skills to start knitting a beautiful beanie – perfect to keep the cold at bay or gift to someone special. By working with two colours, we’ll further enhance our stitch definition and create a truly stunning, double-sided fabric.

This workshop is suitable for the knitter confident in the basic stitches.
Assortment of yarns provided but if you wish you can choose to bring 2 colours of your own DK weight with you to work with. 

To ensure that everyone receives the help and attention they need this class has limited availability available on a first come first served basis so be quick! Deposit for the class is just £10 to reserve your space!

Please advise in advance if you have an allergy to natural wool fibres or lanolin. All workshops will take place in the Knit’n’Natter room within the shop, there is limited parking to the rear of the premises available on a first-come basis.
