This Cat Makes Us Purr - Episode 21 - The Knitmore Girls

New Pathways for Sock Knitters 1 - Cover

Listen here:

In favor of our chat with Cat Bordhi, we will be omitting our regular segments this week.

New Pathways for Sock Knitters, Book One (Book Two is in progress!). We promise these socks are simpler than they seem!

The 2009 Sock Summit. Be there ... or you know, read about it later.

Lucy Neatby's DVDs- not to be missed!

Lucy Neatby's Cool Socks for Warm Feet, and the Little Box of Socks.

The Golden Gate Fiber Institute.

Cat's novel - written in media res, like a moebius.

Some of the original sock books:

Socks- Spin-off
Folk Socks by Nancy Bush
Ethnic Socks and Stockings by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts
Fancy Feet - Anna Zilboorg

Fancy Image Yarns
- Gigi's first source of sock yarn.

Blogs that inspired Jasmin's spinning resurgence:

The Yarn Harlot
The Panopticon
January One - where she found out about Crown Mountain Farms

The Yarn Boutique - Lafayette, CA

Gigi got some Kramer Yarns Sterling, Jasmin got some Kauni.
