Back in January, Carol emailed me to ask if I’d be interested in submitting a design proposal for her upcoming book — Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarns. At the time I had already started working on Knotions so I wasn’t sure I’d have the time to come up with an idea, never mind the time to knit the socks and write the pattern.
Most of the technical details were finalized during a long car ride to my uncle’s 85th birthday party, and then I knit the socks and wrote the pattern over a span of 9 days (just a few weeks after I announced Knotions). It was a busy month but it was all worth it when I opened up my email today and found out that my socks are on the cover!
What an awesome way to start the weekend!
BTW, IK has also posted a preview of the book and you can take a peek at over 10 more pairs. I see some colorwork, unique stitch patterns and unusual construction methods. Last I heard the book will be out in December.
