Sockupy yourself with a new issue of Sockupied!

Sockupied is back with its fifth issue. Can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday that we introduced Sockupied, and we were so thrilled that the knitting world was so taken with this wonderful new type of knitting magazine full of amazing sock knitting patterns.

The interactive nature of the eMags is so engaging, and it makes it so much fun to learn new techniques and explore the beautiful patterns. Here are a few of the patterns included in this new issue:

Here's Sockupied Editor Anne Merrow to tell you more:

Two years ago at this time, we were scrambling to put the finishing touches on our first issue. When we began, some people wondered whether readers would really want more than one issue of a magazine devoted completely to socks. (They were not sock knitters.) As Cookie A pointed out in our first issue, socks are the perfect project to experiment, practice something new, and try your hand at design.

The first five issues of Sockupied have covered socks from toe up to top down with lots of twists in between. As we start planning our next issues, I can't wait to see what ideas clever designers, teachers, and writers have in store for the future.

Be a part of Sockupied! We're making big plans for next year, and we'd love to see your proposals for sock designs, article ideas, stories for Feet on the Street, and more. Send your proposal to the editors at sockupied@interweave.com or write to us for details on submitting.

Sockupied Fall 2012 is available now in the Knitting Daily store, so get yours now and cast on!
