my forthcoming book is now available for pre-order on Amazon:
This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. I hope that it will help sockknitters have even more fun knitting with handpainted sock yarns by giving them a feel for how these yarns work, including the common dilemma of what to do with sock yarn that pools or splotches, along with some spectacular patterns especially designed with handpaints in mind. I was very fortunate to get submissions from some wonderful designers -- from Ann Budd to Priscilla Gibson-Roberts to Ve-Ve to Charlene Schurch to Chrissy Gardiner and some new folks, too -- who love handpaints as much as I do and who were able to come up with some beautiful and creative patterns that make the most of them.
Interweave's got a preview here. Feel free to pre-order. . .
