Some time ago... so long ago that I don't even remember when... I pre-ordered Soctupus by Alice Yu. I love a good surprise, but I really haven't been knitting socks lately so my first thought when it arrived this morning was that it was going straight back. Because seriously, the last thing I need is another sock pattern book. I almost had the willpower to not even look inside. Almost. But I did... and, well, it's a keeper. Big time.
Following a few interesting chapters on fiber, yarn, sock construction and such, are 17 great patterns with a focus on texture and a variety of heel, toe, and cuff constructions. There's even a pattern or two with beads!
It's the most excited I've been about a sock book in a while so I had to share...
Might be time to put scarves aside for a while.
