Two-at-a-Time (TAAT) Toe-up Socks Using Magic Loop {Part 2}

Two-at-a-Time (TAAT) Toe-up Socks Using Magic Loop {Part 2}

Instructor - Carol Puntel

If you have knitted socks before and would like to be able to make two at once this could be your chance.  If you have knitted socks before from the cuff down and would like to try toe up, this is also your chance.  If you have never used the Magic Loop method of circular knitting this is definitely your chance.
•  Knitting socks from the toe up can help with customizing fit.   This is also a great way to build in your gauge swatch.  Finally, it is a great way to be sure you balance the yarn properly to get the same length cuffs without running out.
•  Some folks suffer from “second sock syndrome”  You finish one sock and instead of wanting to do the next one, you want to try a new yarn, pattern, or size.  Off you go and suddenly you have a collection of single socks.  Knitting two at a time (TAAT) can resolve this.
•  Magic Loop is a method of knitting in the round using one long circular needle.  Many find this easier than manipulating dpns.
In this two- part class we will learn a special cast on and heel specifically designed for toe up.  We’ll learn how to do two socks at once. You will also learn how to apply the Magic Loop method to socks and other circular projects.

Students should have knitted at least one pair of socks and  have an understanding of basic sock construction and circular knitting.  This is NOT an introductory sock class.  This is a two-part class.  The first class is September 17th.

Zimmermann’s classic circular shawl is a marvelous opportunity to design just what you want.

Students may elect to incorporate colors through stripes or gradations, or may add in a lace pattern or two.  A great opportunity to explore modifying a basic pattern with your design elements….It will be your own homemade Pi!  Instructor will be happy to consult on yarn choice the evening of Sept 13th, after the  presentation on Elizabeth Zimmermann.

This is a two-part class.   The first class takes place on September 17, 2018.

Fix It

Instructor - Carol Puntel

Some of you know about humility stitches, but there are times when humble means actually having to fix something.  Do you want to learn how to pick up those pesky dropped stitches (even when you are working in pattern or they have dropped down more than one row)?  Do you want to learn about “frogging” and “tinking” and getting your stitches back on the needle with them all going in the right direction?  What happens if you finish the row and there are too many or too few stitches?   Are your yarn overs going in the correct direction?  How about your increases and decreases?  Is there a hole in your garment (or socks) that you want to repair?  What happens when you get all done and the sweater is too big or too small----is there a way to fix this other than giving it away?  Come to this class and learn these and other “Fix-It” techniques to help reduce your stress.
