The title gives you a big clue: this book is about sisterhood, sharing, crafting, giving, laughing. It's also about spinning yarn and making socks - not just any old yarn or any old socks, but glorious, zany, wildly colorful yarn for perfect-fitting socks of character. Dip-dyeing, pour-dyeing, and hand-painting yarns or wool rovings is as easy as making homemade soup, whether you use commercial dyes or Kool-Aid®. If you like starting from scratch, spinning one-of-a-kind yarn is easier than you think. And the socks - a pair of well-crafted, perfectly fitting socks is one of life's true luxuries. It's all right here in this book. The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook has it all - the techniques, the patterns, the invaluable tips - for creating authentic, perfect, made-to-order footwear. Even socks for new babies or socks with ten toes. And who are the Twisted Sisters? A hospice nurse, a post-doc scholar, an organic farmer, an assistant attorney general for the state of Oregon, a high school teacher, a finance and operations manager, a touch therapist, a mom. Your spinning and knitting mentors, your friends.
