Smooth Operator by Susan B. Anderson
This is my favorite class to teach. I love knitting socks, ya’ll. Really love it.
This is a 2 part class with homework required after each class.
The 1st class is the Tillybuddy cast on, 2×2 ribbing, stockinette for a shortie leg, and then we insert waste yarn for the afterthought heel. Homework will be to knit the foot at least 2” past the afterthought heel placement.
The 2nd class is removing the waste yarn, creating the afterthought heel, and Kitchener stitching it closed. Homework will include knitting the foot and to apply the heel decrease knowledge to closing the toe; Kitchener will be used once again to finish your sock.
Materials: Copy of Smooth Operator, US3 DPNs, and a heavy fingering weight sock yarn such as Aurora or many of the Regias in stock that require a size US3 needle.
Class fee: $40 which includes both classes.
