‘Ello, ‘ello, ‘ello!

Hello! So thrilled to have the blog back! We were totally decimated by spam and it’s taken forever to get google/wordpress/mediatemple all back and healthy! Thanks so much to the hubs for fixing it, I was just making a mess of it all, so I’m thrilled that he stepped in and worked his magic.

 

So, quite a lot has been happening the last few months as far as fiber goes. Most importantly, I’m almost ready to go to press on the book. What book? you ask.

Well, as often happens when knitgrrl and I get together, talk turns to yarn and knitting and pretty soon, we were wondering if it were possible to create a universal sock blank that fits all sizes. It turns out there’s a very short answer to that – NO.

It is, however, possible to create a customizable template for individuals. This started me along the path of creating a book that looks at different sizes and how to incorporate shape, pattern and texture into socks for all sizes.

We had the photo shoot for the book last week, and I’m lucky enough to be able to share this with you – thanks to Kristen Caldwell, my amazing photographer.

With a combination of Fluevog shoes and Sweet Georgia Yarn, how could I fail designing a stunning, well fitting sock?

Can’t wait to share more over the next couple of weeks. The book will be launched at Sock Summit, which I have to say is rather mind blowing. Not only do I get to go play with yarn, I get to do so in my old stomping grounds. PDX, here I come!

Before then, I’m off to TNNA in a couple of weeks. It will give me such a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.

Lots more posts to write, so I’ll close this one now.

thanks for sticking around

xxoo
