Carol Sulcoski has released a collection of out-of-the-box yarn ideas in her book Sock Yarn Studio Hats, Garments and Other Projects Designed for Sock Yarn. The creative projects contained in these pages are both inspirational and feasible. The book begins with some yarn basics for those who may be new to the craft. These tips may also be helpful to people who began knitting without any classes or guides. They explain the differences between yarn fiber, common questions, and what kind of yarn to look for when shopping at the knitting store.

Each section of the book is independent of the others, so you can start halfway through the book and find an easy hat project using sock yarn. Next you might find an intermediate pillow project that requires multiple skeins of yarn and more. Still, Carol Sulcoski shows that there is something for everyone who is willing to pick up a knitting needle. The book reviews common knitting mistakes and how to avoid them, and shows that imperfections, such as pooling, are sometimes what give knitwear its charm. Knitters love sock yarn for its lightweight texture and comfortable feel; this guide gives countless craft ideas using sock yarn, many of which are not sock projects. Legwarmers, hats, afghans, and scarves are just a few of the ideas proposed in these high-quality photos and easy-to-follow instructions.

The "Recommended Reading" guide at the back of the book gives yarn enthusiasts with plenty of other avenues for their restless knitting needles. With a plethora of unique patterns and out-of-the-box patterns, it's no wonder this great guide is such a hit. This is not Carol Sulcoski's first book about knitting, and it certainly will not be her last.
