Come learn how to make two socks at a time, from the toe up, with Tracy. Try on your socks as you go and never experience second sock syndrome again!
Socks are one of those portable projects that you can have on hand to grab and go at any time. Why not make it so that when you’re done with the project you’re actually done? No single sock hanging around for ages waiting for its mate.
In this class you’ll learn:
Judy’s Magic Cast On
How to knit two socks at a time on Magic Loop
How to knit socks from the toe up
Afterthought heel technique
In the first session, we will cover Judy’s Magic Cast On and get started knitting the toe of our socks. In the second class, we’ll cover how to pick up for your afterthought heels and how to finish them off with Kitchener stitch.
Homework will be required in the two weeks in between to knit your socks through the cuff ribbing.
This is not a class to learn how to Magic Loop, it’s a class to learn how to knit socks. That said, if you’re an adventurous knitter who is ready to tackle the method and are willing to feel fumbly for a bit, join us!
MATERIALS: For this project, you’ll need:
400 yards of fingering weight yarn (1 100g skein), split into two even balls (50g/200yds each)
US size 1 40” circular needles
A copy of Trusty Toe Up Socks by Tanis Lavallee, available free on Ravelry
The only pre-work necessary for class is to prep your yarn into two even 50g/200yds balls so we can get right to casting on when we get together. Don’t worry if they’re not exact, just get close enough!
We request you purchase your yarns, needles (that you don’t already have), etc. at Yarns in the Farms for this class. Mention you're enrolled in class and receive a 10% discount on your materials.
