Learn to Knit Winter Socks with Irene Baker Finch


Held on two consecutive Saturday mornings in June. Saturday 11 June and 18 June from 9am to noon.

Note:  Participants will need basic knitting and purling skills.

In this ‘Knit Your Winter Socks’ Workshop you’ll make your first pair of socks, knitted on circular needles. What you will learn in this workshop will prepare you for knitting any sock pattern in the future!

Materials to be supplied by each participant:

(available from Membership Partner ‘Stitch Piece Loop’ in Noosa Junction and other stockists):

  • Set of circular needles 3.00 mm (or 2.75 mm if your tension is loose or 3.25 mm if your tension is normally tight), preferably 80 cm in length;
  • 100 gm skein of ‘sock’ wool or 2 balls of 50 gm sock wool. 

(‘Sock’ wool is wool with 80/20 or 72/25 wool/nylon blend. Most ‘sock’ wool is 4 ply. You can use acrylic wool, but it will need to be 4 ply. You can purchase pre-patterned wool, if you wish.)
