3rd Sunday of the month, 2PM-4PM
Sock Club is a monthly class for sock knitters. No matter where you are on your sock knitting journey this class is for you. Class meets the 3rd Sunday of the month from 2-4PM. Each 2 hours session is $25.
Do you love knitting, but have always been intimated by socks? Or maybe socks have just felt too tricky to tackle on your own. This sock class will help you conquer your fears! Our resident sock knitter, Jessamy, can help you work through all of your sock knitting questions and turn you into a confident sock knitter.
Come to class with sock yarn and a pattern you want to knit, or purchase sock yarn and use our go to sock pattern, I'm So Basic. You can also come with any sock project already in progress, at the point where you really need help!
In the 2 hours class you can work on whatever you need help with, but most of your sock knitting will happen at home.
You decide how many times you want to come for instruction, class will meet monthly. Sign-up is for a single class date.
