Here's your chance to make these amazing socks here:
Toe up socks are fabulous for using up the very last bits of special sock yarn like the Truly Hooked Two Of A Kind that we sell occasionally but they do mean you need some very particular techniques. We'll be learning Judy's Magic Cast on, a short row heel and a super stretchy bind off. You will need to know basic knitting - cast on, cast off, knit, purl, increase and decrease. On the day you'll get the needles and the sock yarn to make your very own at home and on the day you'll get the yarn to make a smaller version and you'll need to bring some 4mm double points.
All classes take place at the Trinity Walk shop and start 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).
