I'm so excited to be teaching a Learn to Knit Socks Workshop in Bellingen!
If you've always wanted to knit socks, this is the workshop for you! If you're nervous about turning a heel, Kitchener stitching a toe or just unsure how to get the right fit, all of this is covered in this workshop.
In this 6-hour workshop, you'll knit a miniature plain sock from start to finish, allowing you to practise every skill you need to knit a full-sized sock. The techniques you'll be taught are: turning a heel, shaping the toe and Kitchener stitch. We're using a cuff-down sock construction technique knitted in-the-round on a long circular needle using the Magic Loop Method.
There are some skills that are requirements to be able to attend this workshop: You must be able to cast on, knit, purl and follow a simple knitting pattern. Previous experience knitting in-the-round is beneficial, but you will be shown how on the day.
This is another full-day workshop; they're always a lot of fun and we have a break at lunchtime to enjoy a gorgeous lunch spread of gourmet salads & wraps, and we also get to indulge in a Devonshire tea in the afternoon. This gives everyone a chance to have more of a chat, too.
Along with becoming a Sock Knitter, you'll also have the opportunity to purchase additional needles & sock yarn at the end of the workshop so that you can further those new sock knitting skills. A list of suggested patterns is available in your Sock Knitting Guide that you'll receive on the day, along with the pattern for the mini workshop-sock. But everything you need to complete the workshop is included in the ticket price, along with lunch & afternoon tea, so that you leave at the end of the day with the skills of a Sock Knitter. You only need to bring yourself!
You can book your place here! This will be our last knitting workshop for 2018, so make sure you don't miss out.
