Covet Wednesdays: Socktopus

November 2, 2011

Dudes…my name is in a book!

Not for anything particularly substantial, but it’s still pretty exciting. Go pick up a copy of Socktopus: 17 Pairs of Socks to Knit and Show Off by Alice Yu and turn to page 157. My name is there!

Oh, and while you have the book in hand, you may as well take a look at it. It starts out with a nice overview of sock knitting and then goes into some gorgeous patterns. Of course, I’ve already knit Rumpled, but I’d also like to knit V Junkie, Vorticity, Crowley, and Hundred Acre Wood.

While many of these patterns are rather complex, I think that the extreme clarity with which the charts are presented makes them much more approachable for those who are ready to move on from a plain stockinette sock.

Congratulations to Alice on her book’s launch–I’m happy to have been a part of it.

    Your name is in Socktopus and your sister is featured in Threads magazine…a proud week, indeed, to be the mother of Red and the Little, Woolen-clad Sea Monkey! (sniffle, sniffle…..)
