Toe Up Socks - $30

Saturdays, February 18th & March 18th, 2-4p

Whether you've never knit socks before or you're just looking for a different approach, join us for this class!  Students will be guided through the cast-on (it's not provisional!) and toe shaping during the first class and will learn how to do an afterthought heel in the second.  You can choose to use double-pointed needles, the Magic Loop method, two circular needles, or Neko curved double-points.  Socks are a perfect summer project and an amazing way to use a bright, fun yarn!
