Come join me for a Sock- knitting Class

Elementary Watson Socks

This is a two-at-the-time toe up sock knitting class

Materials needed

  • You will need two circular needles of the same size; either US # 1.5 (2.5 mm) or US # 2 (2.75 mm or even 3mm) depending on your gauge.
Gauge should be 8 sts per inch.  It is best if the two needles have different cable lengths.  
I suggest one 16" cable and one 24" cable.
  • You will need two equal amounts of yarn.  I suggest a solid color if you want to knit the cable pattern.  If you are purchasing one skein and want to give it to me prior to the first class, I can divide the skein into two balls for you.  The total yardage should be 300-375 yards depending on foot size.
Please note:  If you prefer to knit your socks one at the time you may do so.  You will still learn many new techniques in this class.

First Lesson:  Wednesday March 9th from 2:30-4:30pm
Judy's Magic Cast-on and how to knit in the round with two circular needles

Second Lesson:Wednesday March 16th from 1:30-3:30pm
Making a Cut-out of your foot. How to knit cables without a cable needle (those who don't knit up the cable pattern on the sock, can practice this on a separate piece of knitting you may want to bring in such as a dishcloth etc).

Third Lesson:Wednesday March 30th from 1:30-3:30pm (we may need a little extra time this day)
Turning the heel.  This is a Fleegle heel construction.

Fourth Lesson:Wednesday April 13h from 1:30-3:30pm
Stretchy bind-off

All times are approximate and depend on how quickly everybody learns the new material.
The cost of the class is $120 and includes the pattern and four two-hour lessons as well as any additional time and help needed to finish your project. 
This is a small class with a maximum of three students and as of today I have one space left for the Wednesday classes. The Saturday class is still available.

I am offering the same class Saturdays, too:
Saturday March 12th from 11am-1pm
Saturday March 19th from 11am-1pm
Saturday April 2nd from 11am-1pm
