Spin-Off Presents: Spin Your Socks - eBook Printed Copy Spinning Book
Author: Editors of Spin-Off
45 pgs. (paper, color)
Now available in print exclusively from Halcyon Yarn. Spin-Off magazine has compiled a 45-page e-book featuring 8 sock patterns from back issues of Spin-Off for your spinning and knitting pleasure. Knitting diva, Ann Budd, works with two spinners to create a basic (but not too simple) sock pattern that can be adapted for any size foot. Janel Laidman, author of the Eclectic Sole (and other books) shares her genius for spinning fractal stripes in socks. Kristi Schueler's three sock patterns will challenge intermediate spinners and knitters -and your feet will thank you for the effort. Perhaps you're dabbling in dyeing and want to make self-striping socks? Paula Egbert maps it out with a simple technique for dyeing your handspun yarn. If you're intimidated by turning the heel, consider making Anklettos -frilly ankle coverings that use a very small amount of yarn. From everyday socks to a Christmas Stocking, you'll find what you need to spin the right kind of yarn for knitting socks.
This ebook, and all of Halcyon Yarn's ebooks, are printed in full color on acid-free coated stock, saddle-stitched and ready for immediate browsing and convenient posting next to your wheel.
