After a long wait it’s finally here!!

A little book of Sox has been published and is now available in both German and English.

This book is another co-production between two very good creative friends. For some time now Claudia (wollsinn.de) and I have been working on many fun and fabulous yarny projects together. Our knitting retreats are known by many to be well organised weeks of much fun and yarn shenanigans. Where I am the brains behind the designs, she is the magician in the dyeing kitchen and together that is an awesome combination. Working with Claudia is always an adventure and much fun is had on the way. This book is no exception!

Sock knitting has been a passion of ours for years! There is nothing more lovely for your feet than a beautifully soft and cosy hand-knitted pair of socks. They lend themselves to trying out new yarns and /or new patterns, are an easy project to carry around with you and they make great gifts.

The inspiration for these designs originated from my love of hiking in fresh mountain air. Living near the Snowdonia National Park in Wales, UK, I have ample opportunity to enjoy fresh mountain air and breath-taking views throughout the seasons. Mountaineering calls for good walking boots, which in turn call for comfy breathable socks. What better comfort and warmth than a pair of hand-knitted socks.

From a chat between friends over a cup of tea, the idea was planted in our heads to not only showcase the beautiful Arwetta Classic Yarn and some of Wollsinn’s own hand-painted sock yarns, but also to present designs that are versatile and fun to knit.

We are proud to present to you our first six patterns within these pages and hope you will enjoy knitting and wearing our creations.

The printed book is available in German from www.wollsinn.de, where you can also find the Arwetta Yarn in many beautiful colours. The English version is available as an e-Book and can be purchased via my shop HERE. Please spread the word – thank you!

Enjoy and have fun!
