Great Sock Designs, Great Interview

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Anne Hanson of Knitspot has interviewed Janel Laidman, author, about her new socknitting book. The book is called The Enchanted Sole, Legendary Socks for Adventurous Knitters.

I have met both Anne and Janel a number of times, and admire the work of both (very different, quite exellent in different ways). Anne is gifted with words as well as knitting design, and she put together an excellent interview on her blog.

I love Janel’s designs for this book. As a fanatic about colorwork (two or more colors of yarn used on the same row, in this case throughout the entire sock), I find a few of her patterns incredibly inspired, unusual, and beautiful. They definitely are “adventurous” but totally worth the effort.

For the record, there is much variety in the book. If you don’t prefer colorwork, there is plenty for you as well. She has toe up socks, and top down socks, all sorts of choices abound.

Perhaps you would like to read the interview, also?
