About The Sock Project
Sock projects are universally loved by knitters, but popular knitting creator Summer Lee has turned this favorite pastime topsy turvy with designs that feature the most electric colors and wow-patterns ever dreamt up. The Sock Project is a book for every crafter: beginners who want to learn, knitters who want to improve their sock skills, and anyone who wants to fill their knitting needles–and sock drawers–with jazzy colors and new designs.
Build your skills month-by-month with 12 levels of sock knitting. First, start with the humble-but-mighty Basic Sock, then try more complicated patterns for lace socks, cabled socks, socks with Estonian Inlay, and socks done in stranded knitting. You’ll be able to sample 18 fresh and zippy patterns, plus new variations on favorite designs! The Sock Project is a joyful Starburst-color explosion for adventurous knitters everywhere.
Before she discovered knitting, Summer Lee worked as a political reporter and commercial photographer. An Oklahoma native and proud member of the Muscogee-Creek Nation, Lee is inspired by the landscapes and wild lands surrounding her home; her love of color is a defining feature of her work. She lives in Bixby, Oklahoma.
