Sock Knitting 101
Knit your own custom socks with the simple crank of a handle! In this course, students will learn how to set up and use a circular sock knitting machine from Erlbacher Gearhart Knitting Machines to create a simple, wearable pair of socks. Materials will be provided but students and free to bring their own yarn. No prior knitting experience is necessary. Warning: Knitting socks on a circular machine is addictive!
