You’ve worked a few socks, now it’s time to expand your skills a bit. In this class you’ll learn how make sure the sock fits properly - starting with measuring your feet and checking pattern fit. We’ll address the tricky bits like how to avoid holes at the top of your heel, how to get a tidy gusset pick up - including a special trick for eliminating the holes! - and special cast-ons and cast offs. We’ll talk about both toe up and top down socks, and discuss different heel and toe constructions – and when to choose one over another. We’ll talk about the best yarns for sock knitting, and we’ll provide tips for ensuring your hand-knit socks last as long as possible. If you've got questions or have run into problems, this class will tackle them!
