Sock Knitting Workshop with Natalie

14th May @ 1:00pm - 4:00pm

 

The brilliantly talented Natalie will teach you the construction and anatomy of a sock, which you'll then use to knit up an adorable tiny sock. She'll give you the pattern which you can use to scale up your new found skills into normal sized socks. Be warned though, sock knitting is an addictive pastime...

 Knitting level required: You’ll need to be able to cast on, knit and purl. All other techniques will be taught to you by Natalie.

 Materials: We'll provide you with the yarn and a set of Double Pointed Needles to use and then take home with you.
