4 Week Sock Knitting – Starts 3rd March
March 7, 2015 @ 10:30 am - March 28, 2015 @ 12:30 pm£20 – £60
We’ve run sock knitting courses at cheeky sew and sew before but not a 4 week course. Socks are the only thing I tend to knit so I’m quite excited that we are offering it as a 4 week course. ( And that’s my socks in the photo….yes I made them….I’m wearing them right now….and they’re fab!) They’re fun and fairly quick to do, challenging enough to keep your interest but not too difficult, and amazingly soft and warm to wear. Anyway enough enthusing and on with the nitty gritty….
It’s a 4 week course running on 4 consecutive Tuesday evenings starting 3rd March. The course will cover:
- Knitting in the round on Double Pointed Needles (DPN’s)
- Casting on & joining up in the round
- Knitting rib or moss stitch
- Forming the heel (knitting short rows)
- Turning the heel
- Shaping the gusset
- Toe shaping
- Casting off and kitchener stitch
The course is taught by our very own Sam Parfitt, knitting tutor, designer and wool dyer extraordinaire. As always class sizes are small so there’s plenty of one to one time, and teaching standards are high. There’s handouts, patterns, information sheets and a resource sheet to help you source all things knitted related and it’s all included. You will need time to knit at home inbetween the sessions, which are each 2 hours long, so thats 8 hours of unadulterated sock knitting learning time. I guarantee, if you are a knitter already, once you’ve finished your first pair and slipped them on your feet, sock knitting will become your new thing!
Saturday mornings 10.30-12.30
£60 including materials
