Two Socks on Two Circulars
Do you suffer from SSS - Second Sock Syndrome? Do you cast on the first sock with enthusiasm, and then slog through the second sock with dread? Or do you just love learning new and exciting knitting techniques? If so, then this is the class for you. Learn how to knit both socks at the same time on two circular needles. When you’re done, you’re done! You should know how to knit, purl, increase, and decrease. This is an adventurous beginner or intermediate class. Materials: 250 yards worsted weight yarn (wound into two balls), two US 6 circulars (24” is best), and a tapestry needle. Homework: Get the pattern from the shop when you sign up for class. Using the numbers that correspond to the yarn weight and sock size, cast on the desired number of stitches. Work in k2, p2 rib until you have 1” of fabric. This can be done either in the round on DPNs or magic loop, or worked flat. Repeat for second sock. Please come to class the first night with 1” of finished ribbing for both sock cuffs.

This class will run for three sessions; a fourth session is optional and will be an additional $10.
