Sock Ornament

September 19, 2006

       Sock Ornament

Yarn is Caron Simply Soft Shadows:  color Autumn

Size 3 needles

This is my prototype for the sock ornament I will be teaching at Michaels in December.  It has every basic aspect of a sock, dpn, ribbing, heel flap, turning the heel, picking up stitches, heel decreasing, and toe decreasing.  It took me about an hour to make it, so I figure it will be a decent 2 hour class where I should be able to get the basics taught as the students knit along.  Once the ornament is finished they will have learned all aspects of a basic sock and will have a small finished project to take home with them.
