Have you always fancied having a go at knitting socks, but get a little tangled with your DPNs or don't know your Heel Flap from your Gusset.....and don't mention grafting the toe!

This workshop promises to guide you through each step of constructing a sock in the traditional method of top down on double pointed needles (which is actually incredibly easy...but don't tell anyone!). As well as all the basic sock techniques, we'll cover the easiest way of working with four/five needles, how to create a reinforced heel neatly and easily and we'll get to grips with Kitchener stitch.
