Just dropping by to share a new sock pattern book that I just bought. Knitted Socks East and West, by Judy Sumner, is a book with sock patterns made using Japanese stitch patterns. What a great concept! I will be casting on for some of these in the very near future, as they are just the right blend of intricacy and style to delight and give me many hours of knitting pleasure. It retails for about 22.00, obviously less on Amazon.com
Still working on my "Manly" socks--they are coming along well. This evening, I will be reading some new knitting magazines after my son falls asleep.
Have a great day!
