Ready to learn to knit socks?
Maybe you know you are the type of person who needs to knit two socks at the same time, or perhaps you are the person who for sure has second sock syndrome!
This is a two-part class! You need worsted weight yarn for these comfy socks. You do not need previous sock experience but you should be comfortable knitting in the round.

So you already know how to knit socks and maybe you have a go-to pattern that you have made a zillion times and you want to shake things up!
It is easy to adjust patterns and add new stitch patterns. There are a couple of tricks to be more successful and pitfalls to avoid.
Bring your Stitch Pattern books with you to class!!
You will get a basic sock pattern that you can adjust or bring your own.
Socks Not Your Thing?
No worries, we have other classes!
Fixing Mistakes 101
With Molly
Oct 9th
It is Saturday at 6:05 pm and you make a mistake... What is your level of panic?
If you have to wait until Monday morning at 10 am to get help -- and annoyingly the person who fixes your mistake takes all of 30 seconds to do it -- this class is for you!
By the end you will be confident tinking, ripping, picking up stitches, identifying and dealing with twisted stitches, and reaching down in stockinette stitch to fix mistakes. You will have a little practice with garter...
Homework is required!!
Design a Hat
With Sharon
Oct 10
Learn the ins and outs of designing a hat! You will learn to read gauge and how different stitch patterns impact gauge. You will learn to correctly measure your head.
Hats are a great way to try new techniques -- they are fast and fun!
