Another approach to sock knitting. Advantages to knitting your socks from the toe up include: easy to try on while your sock is still on the needles, less concern about running out of yarn (simply bind off when you run out of yarn), easier to adjust for a high instep, plus no pick-up along the edge of the heel flap!
Sock pattern will be provided by the instructor. In this class, you will knit your socks on double-pointed needles.
