Socks! with Amy Arnold

Socks! with Amy Arnold

This class will teach how to take a sock tube and turn it into a wearable pair of socks! 

The focus of the class is how to decide where to place your afterthought heel; how to pick up the stitches for the heel; how to cut the tube to place heel and separating for the toe/ second sock. 

You will not walk out of the class with a finished pair of socks, but you will have all the skills necessary to finish them at home; step by step instructions will help you.

 

Level:  Adventerous Beginner - Need to know how to complete the knit stitch, k2tog and purl stitches. 

Ages:  12+

Materials Fee:  Sock tube kit is $45.00 and provides the sock tube and a mini skein in a contrasting color to knit the heel, toes and cuff.

Please Bring:  A 32" or 40" length circular needle in size 2 (or size needed to match gauge of 8 sts per inch in fingering/ sock weight yarn). Scissors. Removable stitch markers. Small tapestry/ yarn needle. Knitting tape measure.

  • Instructor Bio

    I'm Amy and I'm the dyer behind On A Dime Yarn Co. I'm also known as CrazyCraftyMommaKnits on Instagram. I love all things crafty, but knitting has taken first place. I have been knitting for 3 years. My favorite things to knit are brioche, lace, color work and cables. Basic stockinette drives me bonkers! I have made over 100 pairs of socks since I've started knitting with at least a quarter of them being made from sock tubes. I am always learning new things and love teaching others.
