Fall into Fibre Arts Online Classes

September 11, 2020

Ready to knit your first socks?? Or just learn to knit??

Fall is in the air and with it comes the beauty of changing colours, crisp mornings, cooler evenings and the return to school.  We have a great variety of  Online Classes and Workshops to help inspire you on your fibre arts creative journey from beginner to specialized techniques, self-paced support and project based learning. Here is what we have coming up over the next few weeks.

 

 

Tip Toe Up Sock Class with Holli Yeoh – Online via Zoom

This toe-up sock class is a skill building opportunity to knit socks with completely replaceable heels and toes. Over three weeks we’ll tackle the beautifully invisible Turkish cast-on, Holli’s favourite increases, placeholder stitches for the heel, a stretchy sewn bind-off with no sewing, opening a large hole in your sock for the heel, and grafting on the needles. Take this opportunity to learn a “new-to-you” technique for working in the round: two circular needles, one long circular needle for the Magic Loop technique or double pointed needles. Or feel free to use needles that you’re most familiar with while learning the other new skills.

There will be homework each week so you’re ready to try the next step in the class together.

You may knit a sock of any size, but plan to work about half the sock between each class. If you’re knitting a sock for someone else, come to class with the foot circumference and foot length (not shoe size).

Skills needed: Participants should have experience knitting in the round. If you’ve never knit a sock before, use heavier yarn such as DK or worsted weight and needles about two sizes smaller than the ball band recommendation.  We recommend the Uptown Worsted on 3.5-3.75mm needles.  This will knit up faster and be more a pair of slipper socks.

DATES: Saturdays September 12, 19 and 26th from 9:30-11:30am PDT.

INSTRUCTOR: Holli Yeoh of Holli Yeoh Designs
