Editorial Reviews


"Some really nice sock patterns, but it's the chapters at the beginning about how to use handpainted yarn that I really love." - KnittingScholar.com

"Tons of tips and patterns designed specifically with handpaints in mind so you're sure to get a good result each time." - About.com Guide to Knitting

"Photos are clear and enticing, with the socks shown in excellent detail. There's a sock for every taste and technique; mosaic, ribbing, lace sts, multidirectional, chevrons, intarsia, Fair Isle." - YARN: The Australian Magazine for Knitting and More

"Examines the many ways sock knitters can use monotoned, variegated and self-striping handpaints to best advantage." - Yarn Market News

"The cover photo will make you want to drop what you're doing and knit a pair for yourself...even the most complicated pattern isn't difficult, because the yarns themselves do so much of the work." - Knit 'N Style

"5 out of 5 stars. This book has more interesting sock patterns than usually found in a sock book." - Knitting News

"Sulcoski has put together a collection of patterns that enhances the color and striping effects of your favorite handpainted yarns. Some patterns even incorporate more than one type of yarn." - Detroit News

"If you're new to hand dyed yarn or struggling with pooling, then you'll appreciate the information in the front of the book... It'll help you understand why different yarns knit up so differently, and make it easier to choose the right pattern for each skein." - Simply Knitting
