Two-at-a-Time Sock Workshop

Teacher: Jill Tamminen

Cost: $70

When: Sunday, September 29, 2:30–4:30

Description: Learn how to make socks two at a time! Join Jill Tamminen from Knit Sisu to learn how to cast on and start knitting two socks at once, eliminating the dreaded "second sock syndrome." (Bonus: This technique works for sweater sleeves too!) No sock-knitting experience is necessary. The class will use the two-at-a-time technique to start a pair of cuff-down socks, and the heel and toe will be discussed.

Prerequisites: Participants should be confident in basic knitting skills, including casting on, knitting, purling, and binding off, and have experience knitting with fingering weight yarn.

Homework: None.

Min/max number of participants: 4/8

Materials to bring along:

  • Two separate balls of sock yarn purchased from Spun, at least 50g each (can be one 100g-skein wound into two balls, although please note that Spun staff cannot split it for you)
  • Size US2 circular needle, 40” or 47”
  • Tapestry needle
  • Simpler Sisu Sock Pattern will be provided by the instructor during class

What is SISU? Sisu is a Finnish word that describes a mindset of quiet strength, determination, courage, humility, resilience, and gratitude. Jill grew up with Sisu, and tries to carry its wisdom into all aspects of her life.

When she's not knitting, you can find Jill on long walks or hikes with her husband, practicing yoga, cooking, reading, or playing with their pup, Sig.
