Two of teh biggest knitting trends in recent years are knitting socks and knitting with handpainted yarns.  But what does a knitter do when she's already knit dozens of socks and still has a sizeable stash of sock yarn lying around? And waht about teh knitter who loves handpainted and other sock yarns, but isn't that crazy about the admittedly-fiddly process of knitting socks? 

These knitters need some sock alternatives: creative, stylish ways to use sock yarns for things other than socks.  Sock Yarn Studio provides a mix of one-skein, two-skein, and multi-skein projects--from hats and mittens to scarves and wraps, even a few bigger projects like sweaters and afghans--all knit in fingering or sportweight sock yarns.  

Designer, Carol Sulcoski is a former attorney turned knitting designer and handdyer.  She is the author of Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarns and co-author of Knit So Fine. Her designs have been published in Vogue Knitting, KnitSimple, St-Denis Magazine, KnitScene, and various other books and magazines, and her technical articles frequently appear in Vogue Knitting.  She is the founder of Black Bunny Fibers (www.blackbunnyfibers.com), an independent dyeing business known for unique, handpanted yarns and fibers.
