Two At A Time Toe Up Sock Workshop
Learn the techniques needed to knit two identical socks at once in our fabulous all day class from the super talented sock maestro Lesley
Why knit two socks at once you may ask ?
1 Cures you of second sock syndrome.
2 You end up with two socks that are identical in pattern and length with no left over wool.
3 You can knit them toe up or cuff down and when you run out of yarn they are both finished. No yarn panic experienced.
4 If you knit with a sock blank you will also have socks that are identical colour wise especially with an after thought heel applied.
So if you love matching socks this is your technique of choice.
