"Ladies and Gentlemen! Step right up and take a look see here... Coming to a yarnshop and bookstore near you... "Think Outside the Sox" - the Book. Including a pattern by our very own Joe-in Wyoming."
Yep, it is finally out. I saw a copy at my LYS on Saturday and have to say XRX/Knitter's did my scribbles proud, making a very readable pattern and charts out of what I put down in way too many words. I hope you can see a copy and get more of an idea of what I set out to accomplish with the design. I figured it to be a harder pattern but they rate it as 'Easy+' which is actually right on, once I thought about it. [After all, I did all the sweating - and swearing - beforehand.]
I was disappointed they didn't include biographical data for the contributors but remembered they didn't ask for any. Same for any comments as to what led to the design and/or features. Oh well, minor quibbles.
Who knows? Maybe you may want to try a pair? Anyhow, take care.
