Scholarship tickets are available to anyone as funds allow. Call or email us to request one! Read more at the bottom of this page.
In this class, you will learn a basic cuff down sock pattern using the two-at-a-time magic loop method (no second sock syndrome)! You'll be set up to fill your sock drawer with cozy, hand-knit socks to wear year-round.
There are a couple spots in each session that are open to drop-in students, the rest are reserved for students coming to every class. Each class is focused on a specific technique. If you are only coming to a few sessions, refer to the lesson plan below to plan your drop-ins:
March 24th: anatomy of the two-at-a-time process and German twisted cast on
March 31st: making progress on leg and troubleshooting
April 7th: knitting the heel flap
April 14th: knitting the heel turn
April 21st: making progress on foot and troubleshooting
April 28th: toe decreases and grafting the toe closed

When you attend a class at our shop you agree to be recorded and photographed during the class. If you would like to request that your face, hands, or body not be in any photos or videos that we share on social media please send an email requesting so any time prior to the start time of the class to email@example.com. You may still be recorded or photographed during the class but we will respect your request that the videos or images of you not be shared online.
Our Scholarship Fund is contributed to by the shop and our community to help those who need it attend our classes and events.
When signing up for a class or event, anyone is welcome to purchase a Scholarship Fund ticket at a discount as funds allow. When a Scholarship Fund ticket is purchased, the amount discounted is taken from the Scholarship Fund to pay the shop, the shop's staff, and the teacher or host of the class or event the full regular ticket price.
If you are considering purchasing a Scholarship Fund ticket but aren't sure whether it's for you or not, it probably is! The folks who have contributed to the Scholarship Fund wanted to contribute and want the funds to be used! And the lovely people putting on this class or event are still getting paid the full amount to do it. Please only pay full price if you feel you have enough to do so.
We do ask that the amount you use from the Scholarship Fund not exceed $200 per year to allow for the most people to have access to these funds as possible.
If you'd like to use the Scholarship Fund, you can do so by calling the shop (929-529-7542), emailing us (firstname.lastname@example.org), or coming into the shop and requesting a Scholarship Ticket. We will ask you how much you are able to pay, and the funds available will cover the rest.
This is a new system for us! We would love to hear your feedback or ideas if you have them.
