Secret knitting revealed!

Okay so it’s not really “secret” knitting. Remember the Hedera I knit a few months ago?

I mentioned that I didn’t model them on my feet, as usual, because they were going to someone else. That someone else just happens to be the brilliant mastermind herself, Cookie A. as a “sample knit” for her new book, Knit.Sock.Love (self-published, February 2010).

Bottom right corner = my Hedera!

I’m so excited to be able to show this to you and to be able to point you in the direction of the Knit.Sock.Love website. There, you can see a larger PDF of the above photo (obviously without my edits) and ooh and aah over the sock patterns Cookie’s. including new and old alike. Hedera is there (duh) as well as Monkey, I think I spot Django and Thelonius, I’m keeping various appendages crossed that Ornette has made it in as well. I don’t know the exact ratio of new to republished patterns, but who cares? Twenty Cookie A patterns all in one place, to sit next to Sock Innovation on my knitting reference bookshelf.

Is it February yet?

  1. Lovely! I’m no sock knitter, but even I want to knit Cookie A. patterns. I just need to steel myself, because I have yet to finish a pair of socks that are not knit out of worsted weight yarn!

    1. Cookie’s patterns are great for sock beginners. And really, thinner yarn + smaller needles is really not that big of a deal. πŸ™‚

      I think a few of her patterns use a sportweight yarn and “larger” sock needles (like 2s or 3s). You can do it!
