about

The new, revised edition of Magnificent Mittens & Socks includes directions for working socks. Anna's toe-up, free-sole sock design works with all those beautiful color patterns: stranded patterning on the top of the foot and a reinforced sole. This practical approach avoids the inelasticity of most stranded, color-patterned socks and solves the problem of too much work for too little wear. Now your socks can be as magnificent as your mittens!

Anna Zilboorg is a knitter, a dyer, a designer, and the author of 45 Fine & Fanciful Hats to Knit and Fancy Feet. She lives in Meadows of Dan, Virginia. Alexis Xenakis is the publisher of XRX Books and resides in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
