Sock Innovation
Price £15.99 Online sales now closed, but you can buy at the show!

Take your sock knitting off the charts! Cookie A., pioneer of the unconventional sock-think traveling stitches, mirrored pairs, twists on the heel, cables and lace-shares her secrets for making rule-breaking socks in Sock Innovation. Even knitters who haven't been bitten by the sock bug will find fascinating technique information! Sock Innovation aims to increase the skills of the average sock knitter by exploring design and advanced stitch manipulation. Fueled by Cookie's unique approach, knitters will be able to make modifications to suit their needs and aesthetics (and not just in sock patterns). Sock Innovation goes beyond the basic sock and explores complex stitchery, treating the sock as a knitted canvas where elements are strategically and intentionally placed. Cookie guides knitters through the details of her design process, from choosing a stitch pattern to adapting it to be worked in the round, turned upside-down and inside-out, widened or narrowed. Stitch manipulation is covered in detail including resizing, texture modification, and converting between flat and in-the-round. These complex ideas are explained clearly and thoroughly, accompanied by photographs and illustrations, so that the reader learns to invent his or her own socks with unique details. In addition to a thorough exploration of her own technique, Cookie presents 15 original new designs with floral lace patterns, angular geometric shapes, and unusual cables. Inspired by women and men among her friends and family, these socks display an incredible range of style and complexity, from sweet and simple to delightfully imaginative.
Knitting Lace of Estonia
Price £16.99 Online sales now closed, but you can buy at the show!

From Estonian knitting authority Nancy Bush comes a new classic, Knitted Lace of Estonia. Knitters will deepen their knowledge of knitting in Estonia, home to some of the oldest knitted artifacts in northern Europe-particularly mittens, gloves, and socks-where the craft has played a major role in customs and traditions for hundreds of years. Learn about traditional lace-knitting techniques, including the traditional starburst, twig, peacock, and lily of the valley patterns and their variations; different ways to make the distinctive nupp, or subdued bobble; as well as modern adaptations of the classic ways of constructing shawls and scarves and adding lace edges. Technique chapters will include information about traditional Estonian lace knitting as well as modern adaptations of the classic ways of constructing shawls and scarves and adding lace edges. Photographs from several Estonian museums and from the author's own collection of modern knitted shawls are used as source material for patterns and construction techniques. A chapter includes dozens of Estonian lace patterns, with both graphed and written instructions, so they are easily understandable to readers. Instructions for fourteen heirloom-quality projects to knit are included: scarves and shawls in square, rectangular, and triangular shapes; some with added edgings, some without. The text covers instructions for interchanging patterns and designing an Estonian-style shawl, stole or scarf from beginning to end. Tips and techniques used in Estonia are included and augmented with expert advice from the author.
