The first of the knit alongs for Silk Road Socks is almost done. It's been amazing seeing all the lovely versions of Khotan and Gördes that people are making.

I know, I'm not being modest. But they really are a (not so) secret favorite. They are made in [...]
These are the last two teasers. No really, I promise. Friday (or maybe just possibly later this evening if I get all my ducks in a row and find myself unable to show restraint any longer) will see the unveiling of the book's website, details on when and how you'll be able to get the book, a new pattern for sale, and a special deal for the impatient eager among you. With any luck at all, it will have been worth the wait. In the meantime, we've got two more lovely socks to preview. First up is Salor. He's wearing [...]
