12th and Friday September 14th at 530pm.
Registration Fee: $65.00; Diane Lyles will be offering her ever-popular Anatomy
of a Sock
class for those of you wanting to knit socks for holiday gifts but
afraid to begin those patterns that have kitchner and gusset and heel flaps and
all sorts of other intimidating sockisms. Let Diane demystify it for you as you
knit a sock (possibly a funny sized
one, but an entire sock nonetheless) in 3 class sessions. While this
class was created for first-time sock knitters, it is also great for those who
have knitted a few socks and not been happy with them and also for folks
suffering from Single Sock Syndrome who haven't found knitting socks to be as
much fun as they'd hoped. Diane can make it fun! Click here
