Knitter's Review
October 13, 2011

I have a new book out this week called The Knitter's Book of Socks. It's about how to create the highest-performance knitwear possible on your own needles.

The book features companion projects from Cookie A, Cat Bordhi, Ann Budd, Norah Gaughan, Anne Hanson, Sivia Harding, Lucy Neatby, and many more talented designers, not to mention a surprise pair of colorful padded house socks from Jared Flood. I'm immensely proud of it.

In celebration of the book's release, I'd like to give you a little tour and share a free pattern and a few astounding facts about the human foot.

This Weekend in New York
Time again for the New York Sheep and Wool Festival, which takes place this weekend in Rhinebeck, New York. This venerable grande dame of festivals features fall leaves, apple cider, and handknits as far as the eye can see. I'll be in the author's tent on Saturday from 9:30am to 4pm, and at the Spirit Trail Fiberworks booth (A4) on Sunday from 11am to noon, signing freshly minted copies of the new book. Join me!

In the Forums: Provisional Tubular Cast-On
Have you ever tried the provisional tubular cast-on? I haven't, nor has Ceil. She's trying to figure out how it works, and Yarnlover has given some great tips.
