During the second session, gussets are created. Should the student wish, a second pair of socks can be started using two balls (200 yards each) of sock weight yarn on a 40" size 2US circular. During the third and final session, the heel is created and the cuff is begun. We'll practice a stretchy bind off for when the cuff is the student's desired length. Socks will be completed after the third class is over at the student's leisure. If time permits, techniques will be shared on ways to reinforce places where students tend to wear holes in their socks.
