Socks that tell a story - American Sock Knitting

I have a new design that's been a long time coming, but I'm very pleased to see it come to light - it's called From the Fields to the Stars, and it features in the new book American Sock Knitting.

American Sock Knitting is a book of sock patterns inspired by US states - mine takes inspiration from my home state of Ohio. Ohio is the birthplace of presidents, astronauts, innovators, those whose names end up in the history books; but it's also the home of farmers, factory workers, those who have shaped the country in an often-forgotten way.

These toe-up socks are a journey - from waving wheat fields, over the horizon, and up into a star-studded sky. They're fun knitting, too - they feature mini-cables, a touch of lace, and Fibonacci striping. You can knit a pair with a 50g ball each of the two colors, so they're great for stashbusting or leftovers. They are a real treat for a process knitter.
