Anyone who knits a lot probably considers the craft a passion, and those of us who knit every day certainly do!
It's so rewarding to pass on your crafting passion, no matter what your craft is, and to celebrate National Craft Month we want you to do just that—teach someone to knit!
We've put together a fantastic sweepstakes prize to help you pass on your passion!
Folk Socks: The History & Techniques of Handknitted Footwear, Updated Edition by Nancy Bush. The book that launched the sock knitting craze just got even better with new yarns and content updates. Folk Socks offers eighteen sock patterns from European and British traditions, including boot socks, Birkenstock socks, lacy stockings, kilt hose, cabled and clocked socks, and more. Originally published in 1994, Folk Socks taught knitters across North America the ins and outs of traditional sock knitting through Nancy Bush's careful instruction, charts, and illustrations.
