Knitting - 'Sock in a Day' with Sally Harrison


Knitting socks has to be the best kind of knitting – we guarantee you’ll be addicted in no time! Socks aren’t expensive, they're reasonably quick to achieve and make a great gift, including to yourself. There’s nothing nicer than pulling on a pair of warm, handknit socks in the winter and they really do help to keep cold feet warmer.


In this workshop we will focus on knitting a mini-sock, so you learn all the basic skills and techniques, and then we'll make sure that you go away having cast on a full-size pair for yourself.


At the start of the day, using chunkier and easier to handle yarn and needles, you will  learn how to make a sock toe up from start to finish.


Beginner's sock

You will learn how to:

- cast on using Judy’s Magic Cast on

- use pattern to count rows

- turn a heel using short rows

- finish and cast off.


Intermediate Sock (for students with some experience of sock knitting)

Learn how to

- cast on using Judy’s Magic Cast on

- use pattern to count rows

- turn a heel using a gusset, short rows and a re-enforced heel

- finish and cast off.


In the afternoon, using sock yarn and finer needles, students will set up a sock to knit at home. A pattern will be supplied to follow, so students can knit their first pair.


Skills needed Students will need to know how to knit and the basic knit and purl stitches.

The date is: Saturday 2nd November
