Sockupied Spring 2013 Preview

Jan 9, 2013

 

The Spring 2013 issue of Sockupied is almost here, but we couldn't resist giving you a peek at the goodies included. In addition to articles about techniques such as short-row heels and knitting socks that fit, this issue includes five brand-new designs for sock-knitting bliss. Whether you prefer your socks toe-up or top-down, intricate or simple, and colorful or plain, you'll find the perfect pattern for your next pair of socks.

The Mac and PC versions of Sockupied will be available from the Knitting Daily Store on January 30, but the iPad version is available now.
