Like many knitters and fiber junkies I would often find myself browsing yarn stores discovering beautiful textures, colors, and weightsof yarn before ever having a project in mind.  Most often I would find a yarn and decide on a project driven mostly by texture only to have the person say "You can't knit socks with that! They won't hold up!" Or "If you knit a sweater with that it will take forever."  Neither statement made sense to me but I would obligingly accept what they said and end up knitting something else.  As I advanced in my knitting I found it more and more difficult to find patterns that I liked so i focused more on technique versus instruction and would "just do it".  Sometimes it worked out great. Other times I would rip it all out.  But either way my motto was and is today "I either win or I learn but I never fail."

> After completing a huge sweater project I wanted to do something quick and easy that was practical that I could use that would keep my hands busy so naturally I decided to knit a pair of socks.  Alas I found it a little frustrating because I wanted the socks to fit better but I couldn't find a pattern so I turned once again to my methodology of technique versus pattern.  Hence this class.  Here I will show you how I knit socks based on the size of the individuals foot.  Couture socks.  Truly hand tailored.  The difference between homemade and handmade. 

Your class includes on skein of North Shore Sock Yarn & a tape measure.  PLEASE BRING SIZE 0-3, 24 inch circular needles.  Double points are also ok.  The yarn is fingering weight, so please stay in that size range.

Additional yarn will be available for separate purchase

This class runs Saturday March 25th 9-12

and Sunday March 26th 10-1   PLEASE EMAIL US WITH THE CHOICE OF DAYS. Thank you!  thewoolwitch@yahoo.com
