When Jen said she would like to review my book, I had a total ‘pinch me’ moment. I have long been a fan of Jen’s work, particularly her sock yarn shawl series. Us sock knitting addicts occasionally look at that ever-growing stash of sock yarn and ask ourselves, what else can I knit with this? The answer, just in case you are yet to come across Jen’s sock yarn shawls is just that. You can check them out here on Jen’s website. I have currently a ‘Garter Love’ shawl on the needles, worked in the a sparkly Dream In Colour sock yarn which has long been living in my stash.
“Recently I was chatting with fellow designer, Jane Burns, about her new self-published book, Lazy Sunday Knitted Socks. I took one look at the photos of Ravelry and knew I had to share it with you. You’re going to love it!
Lazy Sunday Knitted Socks: 5 Simply Indulgent Socks to Knit is the perfect book if you love socks or beads or lace or cables or any combination. Jane has done a wonderful job putting this book together. You can tell from the very first page that she has a passion for socks and adding beads to her knitting. In the introduction she says she’s “created patterns that really show off how beads accentuate lace, cables, eyelets and twisted stitches, as well as including instructions for [her] favourite method of beading.”
