Audio Slideshow #280
With the advent of engineered dye techniques for sock yarns, the popularity of these yarns has increased multifold. Going into our Berroco Soxsecond season of Berroco Sox™ and Comfort® Sock, Norah and I were inspired to think outside the "socks box" and bring you many other options to knit and crochet in these yarns. A kid's poncho, a woman's cropped wrap and tie sweater, hats, gloves, Comfort Sockmittens, scarves, gauntlets, placemats, purses, a tea cosy, needle holder and toilet accessories are among the multiple options in Booklet #280 Sockcetera.

We invite you to take a few minutes to listen and watch our audio slideshow presentation. We will take you through the Sockcetera pattern booklet with shots that you will see nowhere else. As our camera gives you an up-close account of every stitch, Norah and I discuss the inspiration, the construction and interesting details of all of the designs. Listen carefully because the answer to today's pop quiz is in the commentary.
