There have been so many good books lately that the postal pipeline has been working overtime. I am so far behind in the book reviews that at this point it is useless trying to catch up.

Two of the better deliveries contained these two new sock books. The first, Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn by Carol Sukoski is loaded with inspiring patterns and great tips for getting the most out of your yarn. I have some Lorna's Laces on order from Unraveled that will be perfect. Stay tuned.

Cookie A's Sock Innovation and I first met on the Spindlicity Alaska cruise a couple of summers ago when she taught a class on adapting lace patterns to socks. The class was great but the book is even better. Full of through, clear instructions for designing your own socks, it also has some Cookie A. originals to knit up. Her charts are clean and easy to follow. This along with sock books by Cat Bordi and Janel Laidman belong in every serious sock knitter's library.
