I had to be the first!

I am a great fan of a sock designer named Cookie A. ( and she has come out with a book a some really cool designs. It is due out April 1st, and I had my local yarn shop reserve a copy for me. They called yesterday at 1 and I had my copy by 3. It is so very cool. She goes a lot into design and how do make your own patterns.
I vowed no more sock books, but this is one I made an exception for.
There is a sock summit coming to Portland in August and she will be there. I am going to see if she will sign my copy.
Her most famous pattern is the Monkey sock which is free online.

I'm not a knitter, as you know, but I sure love the look of these socks, Anne.

I just love Cookie's way with socks! She definitely knows her stuff.
