Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


Favorite Socks Interweave Press Part Two

Don't have a copy of every issue of Interweave Knits? And the sock pattern you want is in an sold out isssue. The new book from Interweave Press seeks to help you out.
I just received my copy of Favorite Socks by Interweave press. The same folks who bring you Interweave Knits. It is a beautiful book, but not a beginner "how to knit socks" book. There are old favorites from Knits and one from the sister publication, Pieceworks.
Be sure and check for errors at the Interweave Press site. One of my favorite sock patterns, Embossed Leaves made it into the book. Everything from ribbing patterns to cables and lace to colorworks. Something for everyone is what I am guessing they were aiming for. Everyone's favorite designers are here also. Nancy Bush, Evelyn Clark. Priscilla Gibson-Roberts and Ann Budd.
My one complaint which is the same complaint with the magazine, the gray type color against the white background. I can hardly read the help pages. Ok, I wear glasses, but would it kill them to darken the print? Here is Interweave Press' weakness, style always seems to come before ease of use or in some cases information. This would be fine with a coffee table type book, but not so helpful if you are trying to work one of the patterns.

There is a KAL for the book at favorite socks kal Many of the socks have pictures shown. Also Interweave Press has put up a link with a look inside. Only four pictures are shown.

Love the footlets. Is this a separate book or part of an IWK issue?

Blogger Suzann Says:

The socks are all from the new book, Favorite Sock patterns. Can't you just see a KAL for that footlet :-)

Hi Suzann

Many thanks for taking the time to post all of the photos! I really wanted this book, and having seen more of the patterns through your pics, now I really REALLY want the book.

Hey! You really ARE a sockholic, aren't you?

Blogger Having a Knit Fitt Says:

I have this book too but can't decide which socks to make first.
Thanks for the YouTube link. I enjoyed revisiting that funny movie.

Blogger Mary Tess Says:

Thank you for posting the link listing all the patterns in the new book. It's good to learn that there are 6 new patterns since I already own all the back issues of IK and Piecework. No doubt those new patterns will justify my getting yet another sock book.
