Traveling to Turkey today!

I am leaving this afternoon to get a flight to London, and I’ll be in Istanbul on Saturday – and even though my fellow traveler is not a textile maniac, I am planning to do a lot of snooping along those lines.

Recently a friend from my local SnB recently introduced me to Anna Zilboorg’s Simply Socks. I can knit a sock without a book, but this book is totally new and different to me. And timely, considering my travel plans! It introduces the reader to Turkish knitting, the traditional technique of sock construction, and then has pages of wonderful graphics of reconstructed Turkish designs. I haven’t gotten my hands on it yet, but I wrote down a couple titles from her intro of books published in Istanbul that I plan to seek out.

No photos today, but lots coming soon! Kilims, blue tiled mosque walls, and angora??

ps. Gallery updated with some socks.
