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 as there's not much open here on a Sunday 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...
