An exciting new book was recently excerpted in the Summer 2014 issue of Interweave Knits, and it caught the attention of many sock-knitters. I’m happy to say that you can now find the book on our teacart: Solefull Socks, by Betty Salpekar.
Salpekar has developed a new method of sock construction that has you knit the whole sole first, working in the round “from the ground up,” as she says. This allows you to knit reenforcement yarn through the whole sole of a sock, or make it thicker and more cushioned, if you like.
These socks are neither toe-up nor top-down, and this new approach brings with it all kinds of new design ideas.
I’m intrigued by this innovative new sock construction, and have enjoyed paging through Salpekar’s book. Come by the shop to take a closer look at Soulfull Socks and all the latest books and magazines!
