Workshop — Knit your own Socks

A two-evening workshop to guide you through making your first pair of socks. Sock knitters will use the cleverly-designed Regia sock yarn (multi-coloured, and makes you seem like a colourwork pro from the outset!). This workshop takes place over two evenings:-
Evening 1 will introduce knitting on four needles, and get the sock under way. (You then have a week to make the leg section as long/short as you like),
Evening 2 covers the ancient art of "turning the heel" and starting the foot section, and casting off to achieve a seam-free finish.
Warning: Sock knitting can become addictive!
