Ask an Expert! is a series of two-hour workshops delivered in a seminar format. Kate will present on the topic/subject and may use a variety of visual aids, including photos, demonstration, and video. Time will be given for asking questions during the workshop. If a "work along" option is included, instructions will be provided but there is no requirement to have it completed: learning by watching (and practicing later) is also encouraged.

Workshop Topics 

Custom Fit Socks: Thursday, April 15 from 4:30 - 6:30 pm MDT.
Liberate yourself from pattern books! Make a sock that’s perfect, for any size foot, and in your choice of yarn. I’ll show you how to measure and identify your fit needs, and create a perfectly fitting sock, no matter what the requirements. I’ll share templates for both top-down and toe-up socks, so you can work them exactly the way you want.

Skill level: intermediate; students must have knitted a few pairs of socks.
