Just as the walls are lined with a vast collection of books, sock knitters have drawers filled with wooly socks! There is a true love for creating these small knitted wonders. Just like your current read, socks are the perfect traveling project and can join us on our trails wherever we go. They weave into the very fabric of our lives. Bibliophile socks embark on a winding journey that celebrate our love of sock knitting -- and books!
