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 PEI's own French merino wool in your choice of colour and an original Knit Pickers "Perfect Wool Socks" pattern.
"Socktoberfest at Knit Pickers PEI" is offered every Wednesday and Friday from 10:15 am to 1 pm from September 30th to October 9th, 2020. Space is limited - advance registration is required to reserve your spot.
Price: $60.00 (+HST) per person. Have your own double-pointed needles? Bring them along! If not - we have, available to purchase, a lovely selection of birch needles, handcrafted in Atlantic Canada.
**Note: Basic knitting skills (how to knit and purl stitches) are required.
