9781933064161: Magnificent Mittens & Socks: The Beauty of Warm Hands and Feet

The new, revised edition of Magnificent Mittens & Socks includes directions for working socks. Anna's toe-up, free-sole sock design works with all those beautiful color patterns: stranded patterning on the top of the foot and a reinforced sole. This practical approach avoids the inelasticity of most stranded, color-patterned socks and solves the problem of too much work for too little wear. Now your socks can be as magnificent as your mittens!

"Anna Zilboorg has reinvented the mitten and given us clear instructions to knit a bundle of beautiful, warm mittens. I can't wait to try knitting a pair of tip-first mittens."  —Robin Hansen, author, Fox & Geese & Fences



"Anna Zilboorg is a modern master . . . her love of ethnic and antique textiles combined with a natural ability to use color faultlessly creates and outstanding collection of mittens. Fanciful shaped cuffs inspire the knitter . . . This is a book to keep in your library forever."  —Kristen Nicholas, author, Kristen Knits
