Beginner Sock Class
Tuesdays, 7/19, 7/26 & 8/1,  1-3pm

In this 3-session class we will learn to knit a basic sock from the top down.  The class project is a toddler size sock knit with worsted weight yarn.  You will also receive patterns for adult socks in both worsted and sock weight yarns.

Week 1) Discuss the anatomy of a sock and different construction methods Cast on, cuff, leg 

Week 2) Heel and gusset and foot

Week 3) Toe and Kitchener stitch 

Prerequisites: You should have basic knitting skills. You should know how to cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, and cast off. You should also know the difference between right and wrong (as it pertains to the sides of your knitted fabric, that is). It is very helpful, but not required, to be familiar with circular knitting on double pointed needles.

MAd for Plaid at The Flaming Ice CubeAlpaca Sox
from Classic Elite Yarns

Alpaca Sox is spun from a blend of fibers designed to make a comfortable, warm fabric. Alpaca provides warmth and softness, merino adds elasticity and cushion, and a little nylon lends durability.
Alpaca Sox has a unique 2-ply construction: twisted just enough to be durable, but relaxed enough that the alpaca fibers can expand a little and show their halo. The yarn feels lofty and light and is as lovely in shawls, scarves and baby sweaters as it is in socks.
