Sock School Workshop!

Over three informative sessions, we'll delve into the realm of crafting cuff-down socks, gaining mastery over essential tips, clever tricks, and invaluable techniques.

The curriculum spans crucial topics such as yarn selection, choosing needle sizes, gap-free casting on, banishing ladders, navigating the intricacies of the heel, and triumphing over toe challenges.

Amidst the collaborative casting-on experience, participants will craft "working samples" featuring the Simpler Sisu heel and toe techniques through skillful swatch creation. Whether you're a novice in the realm of sock knitting or seeking to elevate your existing skills, Sock School promises to kindle your passion for the artistry of hand-knit socks!
