We’ve had a lot of fun with our Sock Boot Camps. Troops learn to knit a mini-training sock in a 3 hour session, then take their new techniques home and knit a real pair of socks. Does it work? Just ask Heidi:
“I attended your Sock Boot Camp in West 10th on August 21st and have now completed my first sock. Just one so far but the other has been started. I just wanted to say that the “boot camp” really seemed to work as I did not need any help during the time it took to knit this one. I did seem to remember the steps as I went along even though I was skeptical going in to class that I could pull this off. I wanted to make one right away before the training left my head…. I am confident now and want to thank you for offering the class and for Jackie for being a good teacher. (I’ve only been knitting since May of this year and am still very much a beginner.)”
This is Heidi’s first sock:
Not only is it gorgeous, it’s a perfect fit. And the second sock is almost completed. Congrats Heidi!
