Anatomy of a Sock Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3 – Sunday 11th, 18th & 25th November 11-1pm £75
Ever felt intimidated by the idea of knitting a sock? Over 3 Sunday sessions Linda Litchfield will break down the anatomy of a sock as you knit your way through a small scale sock (mini sock!) using double pointed needles. You will learn how to cast on and knit the cuff, the leg, the turning of the heel, knit the foot and finally the toe.
All participants will be given the material needed (sock pattern and sock wool) to make full size socks at home!
