happy feet

Monday, April 28, 2014

I adore this book.
The title makes me smile.  The photography is awesome.  And the patterns are ADORABLE!  I tried to limit my photos to 5, by choosing my favorite 5, but then ended up with 10 and then I noticed that most of them are on the cover.
If you are new to socks this book is for you.
If you have made a million socks, this book is for you.
Inside are patterns for everyone you know.  It's sort of like looking at the socks and knowing who you could immediately make them for.
The book is filled with over 40 items to knit for your "knees and toes".
Each sock seemed to have come with their own personalities.   For your own special peeps!
If you have never knit socks, no need to worry.  The fundamentals are all there, including the sock vocabulary.  There are top-down patterns, toe-up, afterthought heel and tube or spiral sock.  A section with tips and tricks as well.
A sock book at the perfect time.  Summer time knitting.  Socks are easy to transport and easy on the lap.
Sixth & Spring would like to give away a copy of happy feet to one of my readers.  If interested, please leave a comment here before Friday, May 2nd, 5pm EST.   I'll have the random number generator choose a number.

Oh!  And I forgot to mention here, but for those instagramers who would like to try to win a set of place mats, hop on over to my instagram ( lesliefriend ) and either regram my pic of the placemat  (with the world drawn on it) or just hashtag one of your pics with #giftofgreen and you will be automatically be entered to win a set.

Happy days to you!

  4. I love this book too! I recently did an interview with Cathy Carron about the "Happy Feet". She had some really neat things to say about the "Gettin Ziggy" sock you posted a pic about. It was inspired by a mens sock from WWI.
