Sock Knitting 101

Judee's adorable tiny knit socks!

Welcome to Sock Knitting 101

"The first thing I ever knit were wool socks! I didn't know that beginner's didn't knit socks. I was 16 yrs old when I started to knit." Said Stockinette Wilma!

"Sock's so addictive!" Said Stockinette Lizette H.!

"My Mom in the 1940's knit argyle socks." Said Stockinette Jill.

Sock Knitting 101 was our Tuesday Night Program on July 7, 2009. Great sock comments from the Stockinettes were heard all night long!

Sock Knitting 101 was led by three experienced Stockinette sock knitters: Cindi, Beth and Judee. Each taught a group of knitters a different method of knitting socks from Double Point Needles, Magic Loop or Two Circular needles.

Cindi helping Sachiko getting started on her sock!

Judee had experienced sock knitters and even fist timers!

Beth and her circle of sock students!

Skills learned during the program were: turning the heel (like magic), making the gusset and and closing the toes with the Kitchener stitch. Many experienced Stockinette knitters offered their expertise to the newer sock knitters in the class. (That's a Stockinette for you!)

By the end of the night...everyone left with a completed sock. Thank you to the wonderful teachers, helpers and to all who attended!

See you at the next Tuesday Night Program!
