Knit. Sock. Love. Giveaway!

This contest is now closed.  Thank you so much to everyone who participated!  To find out who won, click here. Socks are wonderful for so many reasons. They are small and portable, they are an excuse to try out new techniques and you get to use crazy colors that you wouldn’t normally pick out for your knitting! If you are a sock knitter, I am sure you are well aware of sock designer extraordinaire Cookie A. In honor of our love for socks and Valentine’s Day, we are giving away 3 copies of Knit. Sock. Love.  Cookie A. has once again filled another sock book to the brim with interesting textures, shapes and designs – all of which are set against gorgeous photography that is bright, playful and just plain fun. Right away, my eye was drawn to the section of the book devoted to the diagonals. I just love how these lines seemingly go against and cut right through the vertical sensibility of socks. At first glance, the diagonal bands that meander over and across the socks may leave you with a feeling of “how’d they do that?” but these are the kinds of questions and design elements that are explored in Knit. Sock. Love.
