Utdrag fra utgiveren Laine:
We have been waiting for this moment for over a year now – that’s how long this book has been in the making! Coordinating, editing and shooting 52 sock patterns has been a challenge and a huge project. But we made it – with the help of our amazing team and the magnificent designers who contributed their work to this book.
52 Weeks of Socks will be out on the 14th of February 2020. The book will be available in two different languages: in English and in Finnish (with the title 52 x villasukat). The book contains 52 knitting patterns for socks and slippers. The patterns feature a range of different techniques and textures, such as lace, cables, tuck stitches, colourwork, duplicate stitching and felting. All patterns come in 2 sizes. The book is suitable for both beginners and advanced sock knitters alike, as the difficulty level of patterns varies greatly. And as always in knitting (and in everything in life, really): you learn as you go.
With 256 pages and a weight of 1100 g (2.5 lb) this is a hardcover book with a capital B. The woven cover, uncoated paper and a ribbon place marker make it feel extra special – it is an item you want to keep on your coffee table, a book that will make even non-sock knitters want to cast on.
