Hello- My name is Alice Curtis. I have been playing with fiber and textiles for my entire life. I love to share my passion with others and see the joy of creating come alive.
I previously owned a yarn shop named The Pincushion Patch. I took time off to write a book inspired by a class on sock knitting for my beginners- but these socks are not just for beginners! I found that my technique opens up a new creative niche, it's fun, and perfect for all skill levels.
I now have a studio called The Pincushion Patch Design Studio. I have time for designing and creating here- and that is serious fun!
Are you a bit wary of double pointed needles? Now you can knit comfortable, attractive socks on straight needles! Alice Curtis shows you the secret to straight-needle sock knitting with a new elegant technique for turning the necessary seam into an appealing design element. Step-by-step instructions and photographs will introduce the stitches and explain how to make a beautiful seam. Twenty unique patterns feature a variety of yarn weights and motifs and include a range of sizes.
