We will be doing two things in this class: 1) knitting a miniature toe-up sock, so that participants can experience all the parts of toe-up sock knitting; and 2) using our foot measurements, knitting gauge, and math to work out the recipe for knitting socks to fit our feet.

Students will leave the class with a miniature toe-up sock and a personal recipe for knitting their own full-sized toe-up socks.

Please note: this is a six-hour class, with an hour break from 4 to 5 pm.
