Hand knitted socks are a great item to make as not only are they comfortable and durable, they are fairly straightforward to knit once you get going. They also make great gifts for family and friends. This is a 3 part course which will guide and support you through knitting a full sized sock by focusing on the techniques required and allowing you complete the actual bulk of plain knitting outside of the workshop. 

Part 1- 10th July 2024 1.30pm - 3.00pm

Part 2 - 17th July 2024 1.30pm - 3.00pm
