Editorial Reviews

Review

"some great ways to deploy some of the yarn you purchased back in the day when [sock yarn] 'didn't count as stash.' ...This is not meant to diss socks, but it's refreshing to see the work of talented dyers--and designers--liberated from inside a shoe." - Vogue Knitting

"I was overjoyed to see this book!...Carol does an excellent job...She covers fiber content, ply, gauge and most spectacularly color and patterning in sock yarn. She talks about how to make color and patterning work apart from socks... Carol Sulcoski is the sorceress of sock yarn."  -- Knitty.com

Praise for Sock Yarn Studio:

“What a refreshingly unusual premise, showing what happens when you take the 'sock' out of 'sock yarn.' Carol sees the vast creative potential for these finer yarns and, aided by a team of talented designers, shows just how exquisitely sock yarns can render anything you'd want to knit. The designs are beautiful, fresh, and inspiring. Best of all? Now we have twice the excuses to stock up on sock yarns.”
--Clara Parkes, Publisher of Knitter's Review and author of The Knitter's Book of Yarn and The Knitter's Book of Socks
 
“I am a huge fan of working with finer yarns--they offer so much versatility! In this book, Carol and her fellow designers have thoroughly uncovered possibilities with the ever-popular sock-weight yarns and presented them in a way that makes me want to pick up needles and knit (finely) away!” --Trisha Malcolm, Editorial Director, Vogue Knitting
 
“Color and what you can do with it. Sock yarns beyond the sock. Mitts, shawls, hats, socks, little sweaters-and so much more! Carol has put it all together in this engaging collection.” --Pam Allen, co-owner of Quince & Co. and former editor of Interweave Knits
 
“If you're a fan of sock yarn...you'll probably be interested in some of these projects to help trim your stash (and make room for some new goodies!). This book might also make a gateway into sock knitting for people who love the look of sock yarns but are a little intimidated by actually knitting a sock.” --About,com Knitting

More About the Author

After nearly a decade as a civil litigator, I left the practice of law and began immersing myself in the world of fiber. Sock Yarn Studio, my third book of knitting patterns, went on sale this past October, and features patterns especially designed for sock yarns -- without a single sock! There are shawls, scarves, hats, mittens, baby items and more, using a variety of sock yarns from handpainteds to solids to self-striping to self-patterning.

Check out my first book, Knit So Fine, coauthored with Laura Grutzeck & Lisa Myers, with stylish patterns and helpful advice for working with fine yarns. My second book, Knitting Socks With Handpainted Yarns, contains valuable technical information about using handpainted sock yarns, along with a selection of beautiful sock patterns specifically designed for handdyed yarns. I sell my own line of patterns and my designs are frequently published in fine knitting magazines like Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, KnitSimple and KnitScene as well as books and yarn company booklets.

Find my handpainted yarns and fibers on ArtFire or take a class with me -- I often teach at events like VK Live; Stitches expos; and local yarn shops.

I live outside Philadelphia with my family, including the little black bunny rabbit for whom my business is named. This December we added a little orange kitty to our family, too.

What a gift this book is. There are so many ways and reasons to use sock yarn for projects, and Carol Sulcoski gives us loads of them. Just think - the majority of sock yarns are washable, fingering weight, pliable and tightly spun. They come in solids, self-patterning, multi-colored and hand-dyed variegated.

The book contains several one-skein projects that are lovely. The Calico Scarf is knitted with a variegated yarn and has a back sewn on. It is colorful and feminine. The Compostela Scarf is also colorful with blending shades making wonderful hues. The Habitude Lace Scarf is good for either gender and is knit in a lace pattern "inspired by men who love holes in their knitting". The Anu Baby Hat is just charming. It would make a great gift.

There are one-skein, two-skein, three-skein and larger projects. I could just go on and on. For those of us who love the feel of knitting with fingering and lace yarn, you are bound to find something you love in this book. The book is worth buying for the Lizalu Blanket pattern alone.

Enjoy!

Sock Yarn Studio: Hats, Garments, and Other Projects Designed for Sock Yarn has everything I want in a knitting book.

Firstly, it has a great concept. I love working with finer gauge yarns, and like Carol Sulcoski's first knitting book, Knit So Fine, this one explores everything about sock yarns. There's a full introduction to sock yarn and how they are categorized and some of the best uses for each.

Second, the book has great designs. From simple, to moderately complex, the designs are innovative and beautiful. The instructions are clear and concise as well.

Finally, the book provides seemingly unlimited inspiration. Inspiration in ways to use patterning yarns, shaping for knee-high socks, color choices that are beautiful and unexpeceted (there is a stunningly beautiful baby cardigan in beige - showing that pastels aren't the be-all, end-all of colors for baby knits) and ways to exploit the versatility and abundance of a yarn I have explored a lot already in my knitting.

For any knitter, having this book in their library will provide them with a consant source of ideas and designs.

One of the things that Carol Sulcoski does best is evident in her newest book - she includes educational content beyond simple knitting technique. As an independent dyer she has included content on how to use sock yarn in a way that makes you understand that there are different ways yarn is dyed that affects your finished product. The projects showcase solid, semi-solid, striped or patterning, as well as multi-colored yarns to their best use.

Projects range from super-easy, making this a book for newer knitters who want to try a quick project with sock yarn and who may be afraid of knitting socks. In addition, skilled knitters will find some great colorwork projects to inspire the combination of skeins in their plentiful stashes.

I have been stalking this book for some time, because all of Sulcoski's books are intelligent, well-written, and very useful. And I am not disappointed. As someone with a whole lot of sock yarn to use up, this book is just what I needed. There is only one project in the book I don't want to make, and that's just a matter of personal taste. All of Sulcoski's suggestions are modern without being uber-trendy, interesting to knit without tying you in knots, and present ideas that will get you thinking. A great book all around -- well done!

Handpainted sock yarn is quite a favorite among knitters, especially those who love to knit socks and shawls. The colors are fantastic, alluring and quite addictive, so much so that many of us have grown our stash of handpainted fingering weight yarn to the point that we don't really know what to knit with our treasured collection. So, what do we do with all that accumulated goodness? Why knit of course, but not necessarily socks, or even shawls. What knitters need is a few creative alternatives and Carol Sulcoski has given us just that!

Carol has broken down her book into three chapters that provide a mix of one-skein, two-skein an multi-skein projects that feature designs that she herself has created, along with the likes of Wendy Johnson, Veronik Avery, Franklin Habit, Melissa Morgan Oakes, Barbara Brown and more. This book provides over 20 projects that include, shawls, socks, mitts, hats, scarves an even home decor. There is also a chapter covering the basics, including a guide to various types of sock yarn, an exploration of repeats, how to how to avoid pooling, yarn substitutions, swatching and tips.

For knit alongs, pattern support and general questions,Carol has started a Ravelry group, Sock Yarn Studio. So, be sure to visit and join the knitting fun! You can learn more about this book and Carol by visiting the Lark Crafts Blog.

Some of the patterns are really simple. A few are rather unattractive. But some of the patterns are beautiful/awesome/swoonworthy. A couple of my favorites: the Newkirk Intarsia Vest, a solid vest with a variegated intarsia panel in the center front; the Cushington Square Pillow, a beautiful, intricate pattern; a couple cowls & hats are quite lovely. Some of the patterns are very, very simple - especially the Calico Scarf, which is just a long rectangle of variegated yarn sewn to fabric and the Bliss Capelet. Everyone can find something to like in this book, but I would say it's mostly for the beginner to intermediate knitter. Advanced knitters will find little to engage them. All in all, I'm glad I have the book and I intend to make several items.
