Love Your Library - February prep

February's book is American Sock Knitting by Beth Moriarty.  The book's divided up into five sections:  Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and Northeast.  Each section has a story about a historical location in the region.  It has a recipe inspired by the area.  And it has a sock patterns also inspired by the area.  The patterns are by a variety of designers.  I think I got the book originally to do the Jersey Turnpike socks by Heatherly Walker.  Maybe I'll do them later this year if I get stalled for ideas.

I'm going to do Appalachian Trail (knit the socks, not walk the trail).  The yarn is the delightful Unicorn Rainbow Fight! from The Cyborg's Craft Room.

I've backpacked part of the trail in TN and NC. Fun trip. Got snorted on by a momma bear while safe behind a fence. LOL
