We have been loving Carol Sulcoski’s new book Sock Yarn Studio: Hats, Garments, and Other Projects Designed for Sock Yarn so when she agreed to hold a book signing event at WEBS on Saturday, November 10th, we were thrilled!
Carol is a talented designer, author and hand-dyer with a particular interest in light weight yarns. This book is filled with gorgeous projects to inspire knitters everywhere to use their colorful stashes of sock yarn for projects other than socks! There is also a handy section packed with information about how sock yarn works, how to best use self-patterning yarns and how to avoid pooling.
The beautifully photographed projects are the real stars of the show in this book. This Gumdrop Raglan pullover makes great use of both solid and striping sock yarns:
And, of course a staff favorite is the Fortunate Cowl by our very own Melissa Morgan-Oakes
! Knit in Valley Yarns Charlemont Hand Dyed
(in the colorway named for Melissa’s dog, Yoshi) this cowl is sure to help keep the chill away as the New England winter approaches.
In honor of Carol’s visit to WEBS, we are giving away one copy of Sock Yarn Studio! To enter, just leave a comment on this post with the name of your favorite sock yarn. You have until Friday, October 19th at 9:00AM EDT. One winner will be chosen at random.
And don’t forget to register for the free Sock Yarn Studio event
! Carol will have lots of samples of the projects from the book, so you can see them up close, and she might even share a few tips on working with your favorite fingering weight yarns.
