SUMMER PROJECTS - Knit some socks

Think that it’s way too hot outside to even think about knitting? Think again. Socks are the perfect hot weather project and there are tons of fun and interesting projects in The Eclectic Sole: socks for adventurous knitters by local resident, Janel Laidman. This one is full of patterns for every interest and ability level from lace to cable knitting. The Monterey sock even includes its own knit in holes! As with most knitting books Janel has used specific yarns for each project but includes the wpi (wraps per inch) so that it is a simple matter to use other yarn. Anyone see stash busting potential here?

Janel will speak at the Glendale Central Library auditorium on Sunday, July 27, at 2:00 PM. Bring your needles and favorite yarn to enjoy the talk and learn on the spot.
