Turn your sock tube into a pair (or two!) of socks! In the class we’ll cut our knitting and cover afterthought heels and toes. You can use contrast colors for the cuffs, heels, and toes, or use yarn held from the tube. We will meet once for three hours.
This class has homework! At one end of the tube, catch your project stitches on needles and carefully unravel the waste yarn. Knit a cuff - use any ribbing you like for the cuff, but I recommend knitting at least 1.5”.
This is an online class; your instructor will send you a Zoom link a few days before class. We will use a two camera format, with one camera on the instructor's face and one on her hands. Please email Rachel at email@example.com with any questions regarding policies or format.

A sock tube!
Approximately 20g of sock yarn. You can use yarn held from having your tube cranked, a mini skein, or go scrap busting!
TWO sets of sock needles in your preferred style (DPNs or longer needles for magic loop). Use your judgment on size - I recommend a US 1, 1.5, or 2.
A little scrap yarn in a contrasting color
