Making Great Projects with Sock Yarn
on September 22, 2012
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.
