The Yarns By Design Toasty Toes Sock Club is a Members Only Club that will meet monthly from JANUARY - MAY.
Club Meetings are held for 2.0 hours every month at YBD.
Each month you’ll have lots of fun, receive 20% off the yarn needed for the monthly project, learn a new technique and knit a sock using that month’s technique.
Club Membership is $150.00 for 6 months. Pre-registration is required, space is limited.
Cuff down, toe up, two-at-a-time, heel flap, after thought heel, French heel, Dutch heel, short-row heel, round toe, gored toe, mitten toe… Phew! There’s so much to cover when moving beyond basic socks, we wanted to start a club just for socks. Yay! We haven’t even mentioned all the ways to cast on, all the creative cuff styles possible, or how much fun we’re going to have.
What happens in sock club stays in sock club, but we will give you a sneak peek. In June, Vanessa will teach how to make a basic pair of socks with No Pattern. That’s right, club members will amaze their friends with their deft ability to whip out a tape measure, measure a foot, use their ninja-like math skills (of counting, multiplication, and division), and produce a custom-fit sock without ever looking at a pattern. More than a party trick, this is a real skill Vanessa thinks all sock knitters should master. With this foundation, the sock club will tackle one of two sock projects each month. (Ambitious knitters may choose both.) One option will always follow a Ravelry pattern that introduces a new skill. The other will be a “choose your own adventure” sock that incorporates that same skill of the month, but is not based on a written pattern. That’s right, the “choose your own adventure” option means we will be designing our own socks. How fun is that?
All students must have completed one sock prior to the first class. Just one. It could fit a baby, or a doll, or even your cat. We don’t care. Just one sock. If you know you’d love the sock club, but haven’t finished your first sock, contact Yarns By Design. You can either enroll in Knitting Your First Sock or schedule a private sock lesson with Vanessa.
