Join us for this 4 session ZOOM class. Spend your lunch hour with Aimee:)
We'll meet once a week online through zoom - you can stop in for in person help if you are stuck!
We'll teach you a few new techniques, chart reading, stranded colorwork, afterthought heel and Kitchener stitch.
If you've known us for a few years, you know that our favorite class is the Christmas Stocking Class. Nancy Lindberg's Christmas Sock pattern is the best. We decided this would be a good one to try out as a hybrid model. Our Nanny Jean would be happy. She was the Christmas Stocking knitter of the family. Every new member of the Doyle Clan earned a hand knit stocking from our Nan. Carly and I have now become the stocking makers and we couldn’t be prouder. She would be so happy we are carrying on her tradition.
You’ll learn how to follow a chart and basic sock construction in this class. We promise, it’s easier than you think!
Advanced Beginner. You must be very comfortable knitting and purling.
