Two At A Time, Toe Up, Sock Class @ Rosehaven Yarn shop

Two At A Time, Toe Up, Sock Class @ Rosehaven Yarn shop | Prince Edward | Ontario | Canada

The joy of knitting toe-up, two-at-a-time socks is very nearly magical and is most certainly addictive. A dear friend of mine showed me how to do it and now I can’t stop!

Join me on a fun and informative adventure to making socks that fit, and never cause you to get the dreaded SSS (second sock syndrome)!

This class will introduce you to a Turkish cast on and a knitting method using two 24″ fixed circular needles and we will use the Fish Lips Kiss heel method.

The class will run for 3 sessions at 2 hours each, October 2nd, 9th and the 16th.

Material kits will be available for purchase at Rosehaven Yarn Shop. There will be a choice of different colours of sock yarn and the option of using a contrasting yarn for the heel and toes.

Erin Thomson is the teacher for this class and is a fabulous knitter that is a self-confessed lover of sock knitting.

Materials will include;
1 x 40″ fixed circular needle in the size needed for gauge (usually 2.25 mm or 2.5 mm)
1 skein of fingering weight yarn 75% wool and 25% nylon, 400 meters
Fish Lips Kiss heel pattern
