It always gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling when a friend ends up creating something beautiful, so I was extremely pleased to see this on Amazon:
Knitting Knee-Highs: Sock Styles from Classic to Contemporary by GKIYH pal Barb Brown. The book is slated for a February 2011 release, although we usually see books arrive a few weeks earlier than Amazon's projected release date. In the book, you'll find instruction on knitting knee-highs as well as patterns for some gorgeous socks -- with each pattern shown in an alternate colorway and variation. I've seen some previews and I can tell you there are some wonderful, wonderful patterns in this book. I'll be sure to do a book review once it is actually available for purchase. Congrats, Barb!
