Praise for Sock Yarn Studio:
"What a refreshingly unusual premise, showing what happens when you take the 'sock' out of 'sock yarn.' Carol sees the vast creative potential for these finer yarns and, aided by a team of talented designers, shows just how exquisitely sock yarns can render anything you'd want to knit. The designs are beautiful, fresh, and inspiring. Best of all? Now we have twice the excuses to stock up on sock yarns."
--Clara Parkes, Publisher of "Knitter's Review" and author of "The Knitter's Book of Yarn" and "The Knitter's Book of Socks
"I am a huge fan of working with finer yarns--they offer so much versatility! In this book, Carol and her fellow designers have thoroughly uncovered possibilities with the ever-popular sock-weight yarns and presented them in a way that makes me want to pick up needles and knit (finely) away!" --Trisha Malcolm, Editorial Director, "Vogue Knitting" "Color and what you can do with it. Sock yarns beyond the sock. Mitts, shawls, hats, socks, little sweaters-and so much more! Carol has put it all together in this engaging collection." --Pam Allen, co-owner of Quince & Co. and former editor of "Interweave Knits""" "If you're a fan of sock yarn...you'll probably be interested in some of these projects to help trim your stash (and make room for some new goodies!). This book might also make a gateway into sock knitting for people who love the look of sock yarns but are a little intimidated by actually knitting a sock." --About, com Knitting
