New Zealand sock designer Belinda Too, also known as Blendy, has just launched her first book! A stylish collection of 16 sock patterns for adults and children, with an ability level to suit all knitters, Blendy Knits Socks is ideal for lazy knitters (as Blendy admits she is). Too much complicated lace or cable makes a frustrating project, so these sock patterns mainly use clever stitches that are easy to remember, fast to knit, and best of all, look like you’ve got some absolutely incredible knitting skills! Blendy Knits Socks also features a showcase of beautiful New Zealand sock yarns throughout the book.
Belinda is holding two more book launch parties for Blendy Knits Socks – you can buy the book, have it signed, plus buy amazing New Zealand sock yarns from Needle Food, Knitsch Yarns, Serenknitty and Vintage Purls. If you’re in Wellington, head along to Cafe Reka at TheNewDowse this afternoon (Sunday 8 August) from 3pm till 5pm. Christchurch crafters can come along to the Brewery Bar at the Dux de Lux from 12.30pm till 2pm on Saturday 21 August. Bring your knitting, grab a coffee and cake and settle in for an afternoon of knitting with Blendy.
Can’t wait to get started? Three of the patterns featured in Blendy Knits Socks are also available now from Belinda’s Felt shop! Check out the Summer Sporty Ankle Sock, the Bobbles & Waves Sock and Kids’ Ankle Socks and Fingerless Gloves.
