Knit a tiny sock in this workshop. You can give it to the nearest baby, turn them into a decoration, or put them on your dog! Socks are a lovely present to give to anybody, and can be endlessly varied so you never get bored. Once you're confident with the basics, you'll be able to plug in any stitch pattern that you've had your eye on or designed yourself to try out. It's also a brilliant way to bring colour into your wardrobe, and there's nothing quite as lovely as hand-knitted socks.
You'll get a ball of sock yarn and a pattern to take away aswell as tea, coffee and biscuits. The needles aren't included so you can bring your own, borrow from us or buy some at a discount on the day. If you want to bring your own you'll need some 4mm double pointed needles on the day and some 2.75mm or smaller double points for your actual socks.
This class is suitable for those who can cast on, knit, purl and cast off confidently. It'd help if you've worked from a pattern before as well but it's not essential.
All classes start take place at the Trinity Walk shop starting at 10.30am sharp and finish at 3pm not so sharp... We have a half an hour lunch which I have to be strict about because four hours is a lot of finger work! You'll probably want to bring a lunch but you might be able to survive on the biscuits.
All classes are taught by the magnificent Eleanor Burke, manager here at Knit Nottingham, who is an obsessive knitter, crocheter and yarn lover with the patience of a saint! Kids and young adults are welcome but she does have a penchant for fruity language...
Full payment is to be made in advance. Lessons are non-refundable – please only book if you're are going to be available on that date. In the case of illness please let us know as soon as possible and before the lesson begins and we will endeavour to book you onto an appropriate alternate date but this won't always be possible and we reserve the right not to as the lessons are sold as non-refundable. Lessons are transferable so if you can't come you can send a friend instead (ideally, you'd let me know so I can write that in the diary).
