We've arranged to hold a class with Ann Budd on Zoom. You can take this class from the comfort of your own home and the session will be recorded, in case you have any internet connection issues. 

Ann has options that'll make your feet happy.

In this 90 minute online workshop, Ann Budd will demonstrate three popular types of sock heels—the round heel, the short-row heel, and the afterthought heel. While the round heel is most easily fitted when worked from the top down, both the short-row and afterthought heels can be worked equally well from the top down or from the toe up, and both are great for adding spots of contrasting colors. All three types are interchangeable.

A handout of the three techniques will be provided.

Skill Level: Must be comfortable knitting small circumferences in rounds and following row-by-row instructions.

The next session of this 1.5 hour class is taking place on Wednesday, April 5 starting at 2:30 pm PST, 3:30 pm MST, 4:30 pm CST, 5:30 pm EST, 6:30 pm AST.

Skill Level:
You need to know how to cast on and knit. That's it!
