Sock Wizard Workshop

This year as well as my usual textile and knitting classes, I’m teaching for a new eco-textile business The Bird House, Panicale, in Rome and Umbria.

Classes kick off with a 2-day Sock Wizard Workshop on 16 & 23 February in Rome.

Nothing feels as snug and luxurious as a hand knitted sock and as an added bonus, sock knitting looks a lot more difficult than it really is. Impress your friends by learning to wield yarn and knit with four double pointed needles to make your own soft, cosy socks.

Using the top down method you will learn to make a pair of basic socks with a simple ribbed cuff and easy wedge toe.

Participants will need to know how to knit, purl, decrease, increase, cast on and cast off. Knowing how to knit in the round is an advantage, but not necessary.

Please note: This workshop is run over two Saturday afternoons, 16th and 23rd February 2019, commencing at 13.30 and finishing 16.30 on each day. Price is €95.00 for the complete workshop including materials.
