About this Event
Join knitwear designer Julie Robinson for an easy intro to sock knitting. Students will leave with a completed pair of socks and enough leftover materials to make a matching pair for someone special in their lives.
Grab discounted materials from our favorite yarn shop-Cleo's Yarn Shop: Cleo's Yarn Shop is a queer-owned craft store specializing in natural fiber yarns for knitting, crocheting, weaving, and punch needling. They teach regular workshops and host weekly craft circles, including a Happy Hour every Friday night where folks bring their projects & enjoy complimentary drinks (both alcoholic & non-alcoholic).
DISCOUNT: $5 off a purchase of $25 or more for anyone's first purchase and/or class materials purchase. Use the code NWSREF online or mention you came from NWS in the shop & the shop can apply it to your in-store purchases.
Students will learn the importance of picking the right size yarn for their project and how to pick a size. You will then create a swatch to ensure a great fitting sock.
Learn to cast on your sock! You'll begin working on your sock project with help from the instructor to ensure you've started off on the right foot.
Get tips on how to turn a heel. Learn the various stitches needed to be able to do so. Students will have more time to keep working on your projects.
Learn how to finish your project and ensure it is tied of properly. You'll have time to ask any final questions and get tips for the start of your next design.
