I'm here

I have finally done it. I created a blog. So many people have asked me in the past if I have a blog, and my first thought is, "why would anyone want to know what is going on with me?" But I guess some people do. Most of what I write about will be knitting.

The first thing I want to announce is that my new book, Strick-ly Socks is finally here. Yarn shops can get it from Unicorn, Up North Fiber Arts Supply, and Wool and Wicker from Canada, and I will have it up on my website, very shortly. The new book is all about a new method of knitting the toes and heels flat. It sounds impossible, but there are no seams. I am going to put up a video soon on You Tube showing some of the techniques. I am teaching the class this weekend at The Studio in Kansas City, so if anyone is from that area and wants to sign up, please go to their website to get more information.

This is my first post, so I am a bit overwhelmed about what to say.


  1. You're brilliant! I love the book and this easy toe and heel method. Can apply the techniques to other sock patterns as well.

  2. Well done, Candace! No moss is collecting under your socks! As an intermediate knitter of socks, I was wary of trying anything other than the top-down method, but you make this new way so easy. And now I will never go back!

  3. Your new book is fabulous! Will write more later when I figure out how to do this. Mottywoo

  4. Hi Candace
    I took my first sock class from you at Camp Stitches, it was a twisted stitch pattern and that class has gotten me hooked on twisted sts and socks, by the way your a great teacher. I have gone on from your class to designing my own socks mostly toe up and anything that makes that easier I'm all for. I'm going to go to your website and try to get a look at your book, best of luck to you in all you do. RoseAnn

  5. I have not been able to download the directions for the Swirly Cape on Ravelry. Ravelry directs the reader to Universal Yarns but the pattern does not show up there, nor could I find it on your blog site. Can you please tell me where I can find that pattern? Thanks. Sandy

  6. I am attempting the seaside scarf but row 7 doesn't line up the k2p2's. Do you have an errata for this pattern or can you get me working straight please?
