Be a sock pro – and improve your knitting overall with socks
Sock University – or Sock-U for short, is Crazy for Ewe’s 12 week program for taking you from sock novice to sock pro. Taught by super sock expert, Jenny May, Sock U is a carefully constructed program for knitters interested in developing their sock knitting skills and increasing their understanding of the sock construction process.
When you graduate from Sock U, you’ll feel confident knitting any socks you like. You’ll be free from any angst and anxiety about socks for any feet. You will know which method you prefer and you’ll feel confident in your ability to alter toe-up patterns to top-down process and vice versa. You will fully understand the magic of “turning the heel”, and even be ready to design your own socks if you want. Look out knitting world!
Sock U takes place over several months, and each Session will comprise 3 class meetings with weekly homework to ready you and your sock for the instructions to be given at the next class. You can jump in anywhere you feel ready.
What do you need to know and be able to do to participate? You must be comfortable with casting on, knitting, purling and reading knitting directions. Experience with SSK and K2tog will be helpful as well, but not required.
Each Session is three classes and
