When Amy Palmer, editor of Sockupied and Knitscene, asked me if I would like a review copy of the Fall issue of Sockupied, I jumped at the chance! I loved the Spring one and was very curious to see what the this issue had in store for me.
This issues contains six patterns, with the photo shoot taking place at The Loopy Ewe (one of my favorite online yarn shops. Hooray!). Once again, I was not disappointed with this digital magazine. The whole thing is great, but here are some of my favorite parts....
I enjoyed the Eye on Design Feature with Debbie O'Neill. She talks of her "epic yarn stash" and her love of texture and lace in sock patterns. Her top-down socks, A Walk In the Woods, do a fantastic job of combining texture and lace. I want them!
I'm also intrigued by Mone Dräger's Checkers Socks. They are also worked from the top-down and you work in the round and back and forth, but in a different way than a regular sock. I think they would be a fun challenge.
And then we get to Jennifer Raymond's Electrostatic Lines Socks. Jennifer definitely knows how to come up with interesting sock patterns (I talked to her about her Karner Butterfly Socks in the last issue here).
Not only are these toe-up socks so beautiful, but Jennifer also provides good information on how to get socks to fit your calf perfectly. As a lady with beefy calves, I appreciate this information!
The other sock patterns are lovely too! They include patterns for beginner sock knitters, cables and more. And, if you love the history of knitting, you'll definitely want to check out Donna Druchunas' feature on socks from the Russian Empire. So interesting.
You can get your copy of Sockupied from the Interweave Store. If you love socks, you definitely need it!
