Learn to Knit Socks
From Beginner to Advanced with Mindy
Hermione's Socks
shown in Malabrigo Sock Yarn

Let's all start with a basic sock.
This will be an ongoing series of classes.
Thursdays: 1PM - 3PM or 4:30PM - 6:30PM
Cost: $35.00 for 2 hours of instructions
The 2 hours can be divided over up to 3 weeks because we know that some people are slower knitters. Consider using a bulkier yarn to learn.
(yarn must be purchased at the shop)

Now it's time to challenge yourself with classes tailored to the sock pattern you want to make. Try something new! Here's a short list of techniques to learn:
Stretchy Cast On and Bind Off
Different Heels, Knitting Two-at-a-Time
How to Measure Your Foot
Magic Loop, Two Circular Needles, Working with the new FlexiFlips
Toe-Up Socks


Cost: $35.00 for each additional 2 hours of instruction
(yarn must be purchased at the shop) 
         
Call to reserve your spot. Space is limited.

We tend to forget that baby steps still move us forward.
Take time to create something new every day.
Always playing with yarn!
