Make 'Happy Feet' with knitwear designer Cathy Carron

Known for her skills as a fashion-forward accessories designer, Cathy Carron now shares her assortment of unique sock creations in her latest book, “Happy Feet, Unique Knits to Knock Your Socks Off” (Sixth&Spring Books/$19.99).

She’s designed a collection of fun-to-wear socks, slippers, legwarmers, knee-highs and lots more. Some are embellished with paillettes at the ankles, pom poms, buttons, and fun fur. There’s even one pair that features an open-heel, while several others are designed with open toes.

Most of the stitch patterns are rather simple, however, some of the socks are designed with a few cables and bobbles. Several others have a bit of colorwork added in the design.

For a chance to win a copy of the book, just email me at jbrown@detroitnews.com and tell me a story about your sock knitting experience. Please put the words ‘happy feet’ in the subject line, and remember to include your name and address.

GOOD LUCK!!!
