Socktoberfest at Knit Pickers PEI
Fall in Prince Edward Island is breathtakingly beautiful. There is a crispness in the air that brings to mind pumpkins, apple cider, colourful leaves and thoughts of cosy sweaters and throws and evenings by the fire knitting up a pair of your favourite socks for the chilly days of winter. Just one problem - you don't know how to knit socks! Not to worry - we've got you covered.
Margaret, an internationally recognised knitter and weaver, will share with you her tips and techniques for casting on and knitting on double-pointed needles. You'll practice turning a heel and grafting the toe of your sock for seamless comfort!
When the workshop wraps up, you'll take home 2 skeins of Briggs & Little wool in your choice of colour and an original Knit Pickers "Perfect Wool Socks" pattern.
"Socktoberfest at Knit Pickers PEI" is offered every Thursday from 11 am - 1 pm, June 1st to September 28th, 2023. Space is limited - advance registration, including payment, is required to guarantee your spot.
Price: $65.00 (+HST) per person. Have your own double-pointed needles? Bring them along! If not - we have, available to purchase, a lovely selection of Canadian-made ergonomic "Square" needles by Kollage that relieve stress and pain in your hands and wrists!
**Note: Basic knitting skills (how to knit and purl stitches) are required.
