Sock knitting is an obsession for a lot of people. I know it is for me.
For some people, sock designing is the obsession. And one of those people is Hunter Hammersen, author of the remarkableÂ Silk Road Socks, and her latest book, The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet.
I want to knit them all.
This new book features 20 patterns inspired by vintage botanical illustrations, and all feature Hunter’s fabulous patterning and attention to detail. There’s a great mix of socks and accessories.
The Loasa Socks. I definitely want to knit these. And if you do, enter the contest!
And for today’s giveaway, we’ve got two prizes for obsessed socks knitters:
