My book arrived!


I almost forgot to mention that my book arrived today and I can't WAIT to get started! This book features the leaf patterned socks as mentioned on Roos Knits and I'd like to make those, along with the socks on the front with the scallop lace. I may have to ask Roo how to do the cast on though as I got a bit confused reading the pattern LOL!
You can see some of the designs at the favorite socks page from Interweave press. Enjoy, I know I will...

I did a normal long tail cast on! I was on the train and didn't have the book with me. :o)

What a lovely book, I love handknit socks, they are so comfy and warm.

I thought you might be interested in these 2 links,
The first is someone who I added to my contacts on flickr when I wanted to buy some knitted socks on Etsy but couldn't find any... she had a shop there but I don't know if she does anymore. Her photo's are amazing and she's made a pair of socks like the ones on the book cover
