    My favorite things to knit from sock yarn are socks and shawls.

    I have been searching for a place to contact you about your pattern . I hope I reach you here..The pattern is Tempest Shawlette and my concern is the difference in yardage recommended on the pattern and the yardage on Squishy. I thought I would need 2 balls which is a little pricy for me.I would like to do it with Squishy so please help

      thank you for catching an error – my contact link was missing!

      I LOVE Anzula Squishy, but the pattern shines in ANY fingering weight yarn – do not feel as if you are obligated to use Squishy if it is price prohibitive. I, personally, knit the shawl myself and had less than 1 yard left of 1 skein when I was done. I preface this with: if your gauge is not the same as indicated in the pattern, you will use more or less yarn than indicated.

      If price is an issue, I can’t recommend Knit Picks Stroll Tonal enough – it is easy on the budget and comes in a lot of beautiful colors. http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Stroll_Tonal_Sock_Yarn__D5420134.html

      Ultra Alpaca fine would be lovely, too!

    I love your designs and would really love your book since I have been trying to figure out what to do with sock yarn. I like to make accessories to give as gifts and have run out of ideas. Looks like you have some wonderful ones.

    It’s all about the colors for me with sock/fingering yarn – tonals and handpainted draw me in
