I am new to sock knitting and I am loving this class. Lisa does a wonderful job of explaining and demonstrating so I can easily follow along. I am using the double pointed needles for this pair but I am going to make a pair using the other two techniques she describes in this lesson. Make sure you check your gauge because I didn't and ended up tearing my work out because my sock was too big and I needed to use a smaller needle. I'm very happy with this class and I'm learning how to knit socks!!

A brilliant class. I have enjoyed knitting socks for so many years but I have learnt a couple of new (to me) techniques. Thank you so much for all the classes I have bought and have enjoyed. I love learning something new and your classes keep me learning.

I hate it I started watching it before I finished my scarf I am knitting because I want to finish it before I start my socks but I already have my yarn ready and fingers are itching to start. She is a wonderful teacher and I can understand her easily. Looking forward to making a new pair of socks every month from now on!! Thanks.
