A single afternoon session in which you will learn the basics of sock construction and produce a baby sock to prove it. The cost will vary, depending on whether you choose to use a circular needle or dpn's. Your Sock-Knitting Kit for this class will contain a pattern including different sock sizes from baby through to men's socks, a ball of Cleckheaton Merino Bambino 25gm, more than enough to produce a pair of newborn socks, your needle/s and the tutorial itself.
