Blendy Knits Socks - on the iPad!
This is a digital version of the recent paperback publication of 'Blendy Knits Socks' by Belinda Too. Now you can knit socks under the alluring light cast by your iPad!
New Zealand sock designer Belinda Too (Blendy) has created this collection of 16 socks for adults and children, with an ability level to suit all knitters. ‘Blendy Knits Socks’ is ideal for lazy knitters (as Blendy self-professes 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! And, as an added bonus, Blendy also shows how you can turn any sock pattern into fabulous fingerless gloves.
‘Blendy Knits Socks’ includes technical advice plus hints and tips for sock knitting, and 16 patterns rated for beginner, intermediate and advanced knitting ability. A showcase of beautiful New Zealand sock yarns features throughout the book.
What's New in Version 1.1
Minor update to fix the rendering of the pages in landscape mode.
Has this writer/knitter heard about tension(gauge in the US) and how important it is in relation to garment size? Not even basic measurements are given. Some of the patterns are lovely but not worth the price of the book when you consider the time you will have to spend swatching and measuring to be sure they will fit. I think it should have been an iBook and not an app, could have gotten a sample and found out its flaws before purchasing it.
Beautifully Illustrated Knitting!!
I always knew the iPad would revolutionize knitting, I am so glad I am right! I love your book and the awesome sock patterns Belinda, I love the pictures too! You did an awesome job!
Excellent patterns, great pics, and perfect instructions. Only 4 stars because there's ONE thing missing. Will make it 5 stars if you just add what the gauge should be.
