The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook:
Dyeing, Painting, Spinning, Designing, Knitting by Lynne Vogel
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.
