Great learning experience

I found this a very helpful class for learning the math and measurements for socks, along with the countless tips in each lesson. I have a better understanding of how and where to make adjustments and am looking forward to trying the other toe and heel constructions. I love the Craftsy format - and the projects people post are inspiring and helpful when I am picking yarns, colors, designs.

I've been knitting for years, but find some of the little tips she gives very helpful; I've done Kitchener stitch many times, but always have to look it up. The way she demonstrated it was an ...

I learnt so much

Being a cuff-down sock knitter I really wanted to add toe-up socks to my repertoire. I learnt SO much from this class. I think I am now converted to a toe-up sock knitter.

There is a lot jammed into this course and I needed to check it out a few times before it sunk into my brain. But I have finally got socks that are the correct length for my foot and I don't need to worry about that annoying ladder I would get down the gusset SSK decreases on my cuff-down socks.
