Knitter's Review

Socks That Rock and a rose

Polls can be curious things. I recently asked whether you preferred to knit your socks from the top down or from the toe up, and only 12 percent of you voted for the toe-up option.

Yet, since its release, Wendy Johnson's book Socks from the Toe Up has knocked Cookie A's top-down sock book off its Amazon pedestal. We check out Wendy's book to see what sparked the battle for sock supremacy.

This Weekend in Oregon
Head to the Doubletree Hotel in Portland, Oregon, for the Spring Knit & Crochet Show. It's the national conference for The Knitting Guild Association and the regional conference for the Crochet Guild of America, and it features a ton of classes, a large marketplace, and a fashion show and silent auction on Saturday night.

In the Forum: Socky Shawls?
Sharon is admiring all the superwash Merino sock yarns out there, but not for the reason you might think. She wants to know how those same yarns might work for shawls. Any experience on this one?
