Topic:  

You’ve worked a few socks, now it’s time to expand your skills a bit. In this class you’ll learn how determine size and fit needs, how to choose a good yarn and reinforce for longevity. We’ll address the tricky bits like how to avoid holes at the top of your heel, how to get a tidy gusset pick up, and special cast-ons and cast offs. We’ll talk about both toe up and top down socks, and discuss different heel and toe constructions – and when to choose one over another.

Supplies: scrap medium-weight yarn, and 4-5mm/US #6-8 needles in your preferred configuration for sock knitting.
