Sock Anatomy 101: Learn to Knit Socks (Cuff Down)
2 Classes, 4 hours in total
Dates: Tuesdays, 7th & 14th May 2013, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Cost: €50 (includes yarn). Please bring a set of 2.5mm double pointed needles
or these may be purchased at The Constant Knitter.
Handknit socks may appear complex, but once you break them down to their basic
elements, they are simple and straightforward. If you can knit and want to
demystify the techniques of ”turning a heel” and ”toe shaping” then this a great
class to start with.
In the first class, you will start with a mini sock using double pointed needles.
Then in the 2nd class, you will easily transfer the skills used in knitting the mini
sock to confidently knit your first pair of socks.
A €20 deposit is required at time of booking.
These beautiful puppets were designed and hand made in Ireland by Jean. Each puppet is made with pure Merino wool and the clothes are made from felt and recycled silk. The puppets have very fine movements and are all completely individual. They made their debut at the Wexford Opera Festival 2012!
The new Artesano Definition Sockyarn arrived here finally yesterday after a 2-month wait! It is beautifully spun for maximum stitch definition for all knit and crochet projects. Really amazing colours which is no surprise from Artesano. Ideal for kids clothes also. It is a blend of machine washable Merino wool (for softness) and 25% polyamide for strength. It comes in 100g hanks which are each 400m long so most sock and small projects can be made from one hank. There is also pattern support with sock patterns and accessories. This yarn is also ideal for children’s garments, being soft and strong. In short, a really versatile yarn.
