We offer this club every other Thursday to keep a flexible timing.  
You may attend all dates or as you like.

Follow this link to all ravelry “Hot right now” FREE sock patterns  

Below we have compiled a few sock ideas for you to look at on ravelry.
All the terms listed below to describe information about the sock pattern are different techniques you will learn within all sock patterns – Take up the challenge!! 

Week 1: Follow along with Pam or branch off on your own – Pam does have more patterns in the works!
Pam has knit up one of her newest sock patterns “Afterthought From Forethought” for us to start with.
This sock features fun techniques using magic loop, working stripes, cuff down, afterthought heel, ribbed leg, coloured toes/heels. Learning the afterthought heel allows the striped sock yarns to continue in stripe all the way down to the toes. Then the “after thought” heel comes in to play.

NOTE: This pattern will be up loaded to Ravelry as a paid for pattern, but Pam has offered it up for this class only as a “pay by donation”.
