Come and knit socks! They are not as hard as they look! Bring a sock project you’re working on, or one you’d like to start with the help of other knitters. A quick discussion of technique will be followed by lots of time to knit and get help.  This isn’t a knitting class but experienced sock knitters will be there to help. Ability to knit, purl, increase and decrease are recommended but beginners who are curious are very welcome! Are you a sock pro? Please come and share your tips! Samples of completed men’s and women’s socks will be there.
