More Super Socks release day!

Oh wow, what an exciting day this is!  

My second sock-knitting book, More Super Socks, is released today and I am thrilled to see it finally leave the confines of my computer screen and go out into the world!  It's written to be the next step on from Super Socks and takes you through adding cables, lace, intarsia and colourwork to your socks.  Four brand new patterns will help you to practice the techniques that you learn in the book.

You can take a tour of the book and see all the patterns inside here.

What do you think?  Would you like a copy?  Here's how you can get one!



💜 Signed copy through the blog

Click on this link HERE to buy a signed copy through the blog.  I'll post to anywhere in the world, but please be sure to choose your correct postal country from the drop down list as PayPal won't calculate the postage for you.  If you're using an iPad or iPhone, you'll need to email me for an invoice as there's a PayPal issue with these Apple devices.  Don't forget that I'm at Yarndale this weekend so I'll send them as soon as I get a minute!

💖  Yarndale

I'm going to be at the Yarndale festival at Skipton Auction Mart this weekend and I'll have copies of the book with me which I will be very happy to sign for you - although be warned that I've not got the neatest writing! :)

💚 Amazon

You can find the book on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle formats.  It should also be available in any country that you can buy from Amazon - you may find more than one listing for it but it's the same book; I've asked Amazon to merge the listings to avoid confusion!

** Amazon doesn't suit everybody so I am planning to upload it to Barnes & Noble, Nook and Kobo - I just ran out of time before Yarndale :)


💛 Local yarn shops and online stores

As of today (Saturday 29 September), there are copies at Black Sheep Wools (you may need to phone the Craft Barn as they may not be online yet) but more copies will be available in local yarn shops and online over the next week or so.  If you're the owner of a yarn shop and would like to stock it, do get in touch, and if you're a yarn shop customer and would like to see it in your local store, please ask the owner!  The book has a UK ISBN number so will also be available for book stores to order.

💙 Win one in the More Super Socks release giveaway!

To celebrate the release of More Super Socks, I'm giving away either a paperback or Kindle version and you can win one by commenting below with the answer to this question: which is your favourite pattern in the book?  Remember that you can take a tour of the book here.  The giveaway will close on Friday 5 October and I'll pick the winner as close to 8pm (GMT) as I can using the random.org generator so that it's fair.


Thank you so much for all your support! xx


EDIT:  The giveaway is now closed

  3. Do enjoy Yarndale,you have worked so hard towards it!
    All the patterns are great and look confidence boosting as we progress to fancier socks.
    My favourite is Flow Through though, I need help with intarsia in the round and using up leftovers. Many thanks and I'll definitely be ordering the booking not lucky this time. Emma x

  6. Oh, I’m first to comment, possibly because of the time difference as I am on holiday.
    Super socks and super book. I’m (fairly) new to sock knitting so would really appreciate some help with intarsia and colourwork. You have put so much work into this book and I would love a chance to win a copy. Congratulations

    1. That's a good fun one to knit, I like that the cables aren't straight - why should they always conform?! :) xx

  20. Hello Christine, congratulations on your brilliant new book!

    My favourite pattern is the patchwork sock pattern, because as well as looking terrific, this pattern could be very economical and resource friendly, a great way of using up part balls of sock yarn.

    I think the socks would be intriguing to knit and would be greatly admired and make fab gifts for sock lovers!

  37. Having only just got the hang of contrasting toes and heels my favourite that I think I could attempt is the colour work socks. It's something I've wanted to try for a while but not confident enough to try it. But my favourite pattern to aspire to is the zigzag pattern.

  38. I think the Patchwork socks are my favourite! So beautiful 😍

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh ,the easy lacy socks for me. If only I cold get past the ribbing without frogging them, just because of a tiny hole. The lacy socks would be a good idea !!!they've got legitimate holes in them 😊

  40. The Rainbow zig zag cover socks!

    ReplyDelete

My next project is to be colourwork socks so your book has appeared at just the right time to help with this project.
