You spend so much time knitting those fantastic socks and wear them until......... oh oh. Save your glorious socks by darning them.

Heels, toes and toe replacement will be covered in this class.

A darning egg is included but please bring your own if you have one.

You will also need:

-Bring along a sock that needs a repair or two, it doesn't need to be a hole, thread bare is the perfect time to darn

-A darning needle



-DPNs in the appropriate size for your sock and a few sizes smaller. 

Bring a variety of Sock yarns if you wish,  personally I love using a contrasting yarn for my repairs and it's a great way to use up all those left overs.
