People write …

A small sampling of the songs of praise for The Sock Calendar series.

Janet Hoeft writes …
I've been knitting for over 30 years but only have done socks for less than 1 year. Up until now have only done basic patterns, really a variation of rib patterns, so this is my 1st time to really follow a pattern that is not in my head. I love that your patterns are user friendly to me - quick, easy to read and not covered up with too many words. Am taking TSC on vacation with me and letting my sisters pick out their Christmas presents. Thanks again and really enjoy the book.
Marie Cucchisi writes …
Just wanted to let you know that my Sock Calendar arrived yesterday and I'm delighted. The patterns are not overly complicated and each one is just lovely. Can't wait to get started on the first pair – "Sock Therapy".
I can't say enough good things about this publication. I love the fact that it's a usable calendar/journal. Also love the explanations/directions in the back and the photography is tops.
Overall, Jackie and Catherine, The Sock Calendar is a beautiful and useful presentation and I couldn't be more pleased. Thanks for all your hard work.
Barbara Lapinskas writes …
I simply had to write and tell you how delighted I am with The Sock Calendar. It arrived on Friday and my fingers have been itching ever since! I want to knit socks! :-) (I'm forcing myself to finish my last 2 pieces of Christmas knitting first! )
It really is a beautiful book and your selection of sock patterns is superb. You are right - there is something for everyone. Beautiful pictures. Clearly written patterns. Fun designs.

Can I help you further? Thank you for stopping by. I am here to serve you. For your convenience, you may contact me by any of these means. Kind regards, Jackie E-S
