NOVICE April 20-21 June 1-2 August 10-11 Wednesday-Thursday
8am-4pm This two day intensive class will cover the basics and finely tune your sock making skills from average to excellent. It starts with a discussion of ergonomics, then yarns and how to select the best ones for the sizes of socks you want to make and the real biggie is how to make socks that fit. Then it moves into making a sampler of new techniques and finally a pair of socks that fit*.
COST: $250 Includes lunch and materials
ADVANCED April 22-23 June 3-4 Aug 12-13 Friday-Saturday
8am-4pm This two day intensive learning session is amazing. The first day is a sampler of many fancy techniques that will challenge your skills on the circular knitting machine. Techniques include fancy lace, cables, color changes, fair isle, duplicate stitch and more. It moves into an introduction to ribbing. The final day is making a pair of ribbed socks then closing the toes and a discussion on how to troubleshoot and fix mistakes*.
COST: $250 includes lunch and materials.
*Topics mentioned are main topics, there is much more discussion and techniques than I can’t even think of right now. All I know is that when students are finished with sock school, they are pleasantly worn out from all the learning!
