close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


We have more Ripple from Tahki. I keep thinking that this would be perfect for a Skif sweater...maybe Martha? We have a good stock of these colors, but this stuff flies off the shelves.
Completely unrelated, Sock Knitting Master Class by Ann Budd also arrived this week. I don't even knit socks very often, but this reference book seems like a must-have. Check out this table of contents:

This book includes great information on pretty much everything you'd need to know about sock knitting. Ann explains magic loop and knitting in the round on two circular needles. She covers so many kinds of toes and heels that your head will spin. In addition to all of this, there are more than a dozen designs demonstrating the techniques.

Asymmetrical Cables by Cookie A
Bulgarian Blooms in Priscilla Gibson-Roberts
Happy-Go-Lucky Boot Socks by Veronik Avery
Crazy cool cotton yarn and a comprehensive sock book. Completely unrelated, but still good.
