Let's Knit Socks (5-Day)

Intermediate Level

Knit your first pair of toe-up slipper socks. Socks knit with worsted weight yarn are perfect for lounging. Learn how to cast on and knit with double-pointed needles and make an afterthought heel.

This is a 5-day class. Classes meet from 1:00p.m. to 2:30p.m. on Saturdays on October 5th, October 12th, October 19th, November 2nd, and November 9th.

Day 1: Cast on with Judy's Magic Cast, work toe increases and the foot.
Day 2: Place the heel stitches with waste yarn and work the leg.
Day 3: Knit ribbed cuff and bind off with a stretchy bind off.
Day 4: Pick up the heel stitches and create heel.

About the branch

LYNX Bus Link 104 East Colonial

 

The Alafaya Branch has a long history of providing library services to the East Orange County community. The branch originally opened in 1965 as the Azalea Park branch, situated on Lake Barton Road. From the 1970s through the 1990s the branch provided library services from shopping center locations. Ground was broken in January 1999 for a new branch, designed to be the prototype branch for future Orange County Library System branches. Opened on February 1, 2000, the Alafaya branch was funded by a Florida Library Construction Grant.
