2 SOCKS on 2 CIRCULARS  with LOUISE
3 SATURDAYS
    JAN 13, FEB 3 and FEB 17  with Louise $40

10:30am-12:30  3 saturdays over 6 weeks   
Take your time and make a pair of toe-up socks that fit,
   knitting both socks at the same time no guesswork,
   no row counting to make socks match
   and have a pair when you bind offf.
Worsted weight suggested
(faster) but any weight is ok -
  there is time between saturdays to do homework
  knitting.
   Also a wool blend with 10-30%  nylon is easier to
   manage than carrying a reinforcement thread.
You need 2 circular needles same diameter in appropriate
   size for the yarn you choose.  24" has been the most
   popular length

APPROPRIATE SIZE needle = tightly knitted fabric

  e.g. needles and yarn: 
FINGERING ~#0-2,  100gm
SPORT ~#1-3,  100-125gm
DK ~#2-4,  125-150gm 
WORSTED ~#4-5-6 ,  150gm-175gm

It is most important to have SMOOTH cable
connections and STRAIGHT not-curly cables.
**amounts of yarn indicated in stockinette with
  ribbed cuff  and do not include extra large sizes
  (add 25-50gms for the big socks)

This is one of the most useful classes you'll
  ever take!
