Magic Loop Sock Class

If you love the idea of hand knit socks but hate fussing with double point needles this is the class for you. Learn to knit a classic sock from the top down using the magic loop method. This technique uses one long circular needle instead of four double points. No sock knitting experience is necessary for this class.
