Session # 2 Fit to Knit Socks October 3-5, 2014

Knit Any Socks to Fit Anyone with Andi Smith, author of Big Foot Knits

So many sock patterns are written as if one size fits all. But anyone who has non-standard feet and legs knows better. In this ingenious workshop, designer Andi Smith walks the smaller- and bigger-footed among us through the steps of properly measuring our feet and legs, assessing the toe and heel shapes that fit us best, and adapting patterns to suit our shape.(Because it works in the other direction, too, when it comes to adjusting for smaller feet!)

Fees are as follows: $400 for the workshop which includes the class and all hand outs. $380 which includes lodging, all meals and non alcoholic beverages.
