Learn to create a pair of socks based on a process rather than a pattern. We will choose the yarn and select needles as a part of the class process. We will look at different types of sock tops, how to create a heel flap, shape the foot, and finish with several different choices for the toe. This class should leave you with a plan for socks that will not rely on having a pattern. Once this process is learned, you can choose any yarn and make your socks.
Skills required: Students must already know how to knit in the round with double pointed needles.
Three two-hour sessions.
Materials needed: We will select and purchase yarn for this class in the shop. A selection of different sizes of double point sock needles will also be needed.
Minimum students needed: 3
Instructor: Linda Johnson
Linda Johnson is a spinner, weaver, and knitter. She became interested in the whole process of creating from fiber as a young girl listening to a story about a mother who gleamed the wool from the brambles, dyed it with indigo, and wove the fabric for a dress. Linda learned to knit on a knitting machine, and then took what she had learned and applied it to hand knitting. This gives her a unique perspective on the knitting process. She had a custom design knitting shop for several years in Fort Worth and has been a judge at the Taos Wool Festival.
