NF101: Beginning Sock Knitting: House Socks for the Beginning Sock Knitter

This class, for the very beginning student, will cover all the basics for knitting your first pair of socks. You will make a pair of DK weight socks that are appropriate for padding around the house and even keep your feet warm in bed at night.

Although these socks won’t fit in your dress shoes, this class will prepare you to move on to knitting with fine yarn and advanced sock patterns.

You will learn to:
* select appropriate yarn
* ensure the right fit
* turn a heel and pick up gusset stitches
* the (dreaded) Kitchener stitch
* how to care for your finished socks
* knit in the round on two circular needles

Necessary materials:
* 1-2 skeins DK wt yarn: wool, acrylic, nylon or a blend of those fibers.
* No cotton or plant based fibers
* 2 US03 24” circular needles; ideally not identical.
* 1 stitch marker
* A small crochet hook or fix-it tool. If you don’t have one, Nancy will provide one for your use.

The above materials are available for sale in the shop. Please purchase materials before the class begins.

Instructor Bio:
Born and raised in Spokane, Nancy?s grandmother taught her how to knit when she was 10 years old. She hasn?t stopped since. After college Nancy moved away to pursue a career in high tech. When she found that retirement wasn?t her thing, she became a co-owner of a local yarn shop in a small California mountain town. There she taught a wide variety of classes, including beginning knitting, socks, beaded lace, advanced techniques and fixing mistakes. Moving back to Spokane recently, Nancy has resumed her love of teaching and all things fiber at The Hook and Needle Nook.
