Rock Your Socks with Hannah Thiessen



 
Rock Your Socks
Explore unique sock construction methods to achieve your perfect fit! Socks are among the most popular things to knit and rightfully so: they're small, portable, and are the perfect one-skein project to celebrate a souvenir skein or brilliantly hand-dyed hank. In this class, we'll explore how yarn choices, construction methods, plus a variety of cast-ons, heels, toes, and shaping that can help you identify the perfect route to your best-fitting sock. Even experienced sock knitters should be prepared to walk out with a deeper understanding of this knitted accessory!
