Yarn Whisperer

That's the nickname folks have given to knitter and yarn expert, Clara Parkes, founder of Knitter's Review and author of two classics: The Knitter's Book of Yarn and The Knitter's Book of Wool.

This week knitters everywhere are celebrating the birth of her latest: The Knitter's Book of Socks.  Oh...... Sock Heaven!  A former sufferer of Serious Second Sock Syndrome (SSSS), I have been deeply in love with socks for the past decade.  A sock is my favourite portable project, Just Plain Vanilla, thank you -- but with interesting yarn.

That said, I love-love-love looking at sock patterns -- and this book contains twenty new ones!  Oh...! 

Suffice it to say, if one of Santa's elves (aka one of my kids) doesn't leave it under our Christmas tree, I'm just gonna have to buy it for m'self.  Let's see...20 patterns divided by 12 months...
