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 2018), 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 2018 and I’ll pick the winner as close to 8pm (GMT) as I can using the random.org generator so that it’s fair.

EDIT:  The giveaway is now closed

 

Thank you so much for all your support! xx

    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

  7. Catherine says:

    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

  12. Hayley says:

    The book looks fantastic, and the patterns and really cool. 🙂 The cover star socks are amazing, but I think my favourite is the flow throgut pattern.

  13. happy hooker says:

    Congratulations on the release of your book. I love all the socks but I think the Rainbow Zig-Zag are my favourites. Have a wonderful time at Yarndale, wish I could be there. Maybe next year…

  14. Unknown says:

    I like the RAINBOW ZIGZAG SOCK. Going to be my next pair when I finish all my Christmas knitting. Or maybe I’ll do them first!!

  15. L G Howell says:

    Thank you for your generosity. I love the Easy Lace socks!

  16. Lynn says:

    Hi Christine Congratulations on the book release! I do hope you are selling loads at Yarndale!All your patterns look interesting but I'm particularly looking forward to trying out your cable pattern, I feel it's about time I moved on from the basic sock pattern. Good luck with the new book!

  17. Trish Rapley Giles says:

    I like the simple lines of the easy cable socks.

  18. Unknown says:

    It’s too hard to choose a favourite! With the festive season approaching I’m looking forward to trying the Easy Colourwork Socks, but I think if I had to pick a favourite it would be the stunning Rainbow Zig-Zag Socks. Congratulations on the book, it looks great!

  19. Solstitches says:

    Congratulations on your second sock knitting book. You have helped so many get started on their fun sock knitting adventures.
    My favourite pattern in the book is the Drunken Cable pattern.
    Hope Yarndale was a huge success for you.

    • Winwick Mum says:

      That's a good fun one to knit, I like that the cables aren't straight – why should they always conform?! 🙂 xx

  20. Julie says:

    The colourwork socks are something i'm looking forward to reading about as I would like to learn how to try that.
    I hope you had a good Yarndale, met friends old and new and sold lots of books.

  21. Morag says:

    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!

  22. Mary says:

    My favorite is "Flow Through" but I like some of the other designs, too.

  23. Geeha says:

    Hope that you enjoyed Yarndale. I tried to comment a couple of days ago but it has not appeared. You converted me to a sock knitter after 60 years. I appreciate all your comments about the ups and downs of life. I love the Rainbow Zig Zag socks.

  24. Heather Haigh says:

    I love the look of the easy lace socks, I haven't tried any lacey socks and they look great.

  28. jojo says:

    Hi Christine, congratulations on your new book being published!
    My favourite pattern is the cable pattern, I've never attempted cables before but managed them with your photos and tutorial 😊

  29. Anonymous says:

    I think it would be the Easy Colourwork socks – I would like to try colourwork and to see 'easy' used in the same sentence has to be a bonus! Vicky from Brum

  33. Han Livsey says:

    So difficult to choose a favourite! I've not tried Intarsia, so I'm going to give the patchwork socks a go but I think my favourite is the Beatrice pattern. I can see myself making them in lots of solid colours.

  34. RHi says:

    The easy cable for me every time – so warm and cosy and comforting!

  38. Roseysaurus says:

    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.

  39. Kirstie Lynch says:

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

  40. Unknown says:

    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 😊

  41. Holly says:

    The Rainbow zig zag cover socks!

  42. Mandy Slatcer says:

    I love the patchwork socks x

    Sorry Christine, but I couldn't decide which pair I liked best, so I've ordered your book from the blog and will just have to knit all of them to decide which I like best! Thank you for another super book xxx

  44. Samantha says:

    Congratulations on the new book,I love the easy lace socks (hopefully they'll turn out better than the lace baby socks I made…)

    Oo the patchwork socks! – though still working on the basics!

  47. Nicola Phibben says:

  49. Unknown says:

    Colour work was my target to learn this year and so far I have done a Fisherman’s Kep and a toorie. My next project is to be colourwork socks so your book has appeared at just the right time to help with this project. I plan to do the Easy Colourwork socks first before progressing to the Patchwork ones which look amazing!

  61. Mummyto3monsters says:

    Congratulations on your second book. I loved your first book. Its what got me started knitting and to learn to make socks.

  85. Kath Greaves says:

    I'd have to say the zigzag socks – stunning!
