The socks in this book feature some of my favorite Rock ‘n Roll songs/bands of all time. Each one will include a little story about that song, and why I love it. Each of the designs was created using color and stitches that remind me of the song in some way. I chose yarns from two local Northwest indie yarn dyers and they hand dyed them to work with each of the songs.
