Are you a sock knitter who will do anything to avoid grafting toes, or perhaps you have a hard time getting around to that second sock . . . this workshop is for you. Â You'll begin the 4 week workshop by casting on and knitting the toes of both socks, then learn to knit socks that fit beautifully as you knit along the feet and shape the heels. Â Before you know it you'll be casting off at the cuffs--two socks finished at the same time! Â In this workshop you'll Â knit a pair of children's socks while developing the techniques needed to knit a larger pair for yourself. Â This class is suitable for those who have knit socks in the round, but experience with socks on circular needles is not required.
Of course, we can't talk about knitting multiple socks without remembering Brian's amazing feat during Sock Summit. Â If you missed his video, Â have a look!
