Description: In this two-part class, you will learn how to create an afterthought (also known as a peasant heel) for socks and mittens. In the first class, will cast on for a simple sock, and then in the second class will actually work the afterthought heel. This is a great technique for those times when you aren't sure if you'll have enough of a special yarn, or you just don't know how big you need to make a sock for someone. The same technique can be used in traditional Scandinavian mittens or gloves for a thumb, which we will discuss as well!
Materials: One 100g skein of fingering, sport, or DK weight yarn and a set of size US 2 or US 3 DPNs.
