September 29, 2018 2pm - 4pm, October 6, 2018 2pm - 4pm

These comfy, slipper socks will become your favorite when the cooler weather comes because of the clever techniques used to make them well-fitting. In this class you will learn how to: pick up stitches, seam with a mattress stitch, shape in the round, and graft using the kitchener stitch. Homework required.

Caution: after you knit a pair for yourself, your family and friends will want them, too!
