Experiment with simple knitting techniques and yield colorwork socks that fit perfectly. Meet Kate Atherley, sock knitter, designer, and math whiz. Plus, an abstract concept gets a new interpretation when twisted traveling stitches meet a mathmatical rule set.


With 6 sock patterns, Sockupied Spring 2014 will have sock knitters' needles working overtime:
  • Find your stranded colorwork wavelength with Terry Morris' top-down, geometric Spectrum Socks.
  • Whether you prefer handpainted or solid sock yarns, dive into the vibrant top-down Voltage Socks by Trudy Evans, shown in two different yarns.
  • Knit your own stranded cellular automation with the twisted toe-up Automata Socks by Lana Holden, a math guru's sock of choice.
  • Pops of color grow into embossed flowers in the toe-up Centaurea Socks by Anita Grahn, knit with handpainted yarn.
  • Cable crossings follow the rhythms of four fundamental mathematical constants in Kate Atherley's top-down Constant Cables Socks.
  • For an optic illusion, knit the top-down Houndstooth Socks by Stephanie van der Linden, where interlocking squares and triangles that create an op-art effect.

Q: What software do I need to view this Sockupied eMag?

A: Sockupied for the PC and MAC desktops requires a simple software application called Adobe® Air® that’s easy to use and can be installed on your computer for free. Sockupied includes articles, videos, galleries, hyperlinks to inspiring and informative websites, and so much more. With just the click of your mouse, you can open and play videos, view slideshows, and easily navigate through the eMag.



Q: How is Sockupied different than the digital edition of Interweave Knits Magazine?

A:Sockupied is an entirely unique product, separate from Interweave Knits and Knitscene magazines. This eMag focuses solely on sock knitting. Unlike digital editions of Interweave Knits and Knitscene magazines, which are exact replications of the print editions, Sockupied was developed as a digital product so it can capitalize on all the benefits of digital media capabilities—including videos, slideshows, zoom options that enable you to see close-ups of knitted socks, patterns that can be downloaded and printed, abilities to hyperlink to websites, and more.


Q: Will Sockupied be available as a print magazine?

A: Sockupied was built as a digital product, therefore it will not be printed as a traditional magazine. However, we hope you take advantage of the many printable materials included in Sockupied.

Q: Is Sockupied available as a subscription?

A: Sockupied is considered a special digital publication and is not available for a subscription. Each Sockupied eMag is a single issue and available as a single download.


Q: Does Sockupied mean that Interweave Knits or Knitscene magazines will stop printing?

A: Absolutely not! Interweave Knits and Knitscene print and digital magazines are entirely separate offerings to the knitting craft world. Interweave Knits is still our flagship publication and we have exciting issues of this and other knitting magazines to come!

Great tips and tricks Review by Yuki

I have been knitting socks for 4 years but still learned something new.

Downloading Review by Deborah

I bought ten of the Sockupied e-mags as they were on sale at a very reasonable price especially as I live in the United Kingdom & the exchange rate from $ to £ was excellent. I was a bit concerned about the downloads especially the size of them. I run my husbands office from home so I have 2 x 1TB hard disks attached to my PC. I downloaded them to one of the hard disks & had the program extract itself to there then added shortcuts from there to my knitting file on the Computer C drive. It works a treat & they all load fine. As to the complaint of not being able to view on a Tablet I knew that would not work as it was obvious you needed either a PC or Mac operating system to run the e- mag.

great concept and great magazine Review by Joyce

I started receiving these e-magazine's about a year ago. I am never disappointed in the quality and feel they are a great bargain. I always learn something new and it is so convenient to have them on my desktop. I have never had any problems with the technical aspects of receiving any of the digital products I have ordered . Keep up the good work.!

Tech problem solvable by adding ".exe" to the file name for PC. Review by Mary L

This is more than an emag, the layout is fantastic! But it took me dozens of trials and three technicians with lengthy duplications of instructions that were not applicable, as well as returning my first purchase because the download would not open. I almost gave up, but really wanted to see what the mathematics were about, so reordered and started the process all over again. Thank you, Constance, for suggesting that I add ".exe" to the file name. It worked and I can now open the file. It is a shame that the media company could not identify and fix the problem from the get-go.
Sure glad I was persisant. This emag is so attractive and the articles and instructions appear to be superior in concept. I can't wait to knit up a pair of socks and perhaps use the techniques in knitting other items. It took me awhile to figure out the layout and realize it was scrollable in two directions, more like using a touch screen, which I do not have on my PC. Once I figured it out, I was amazed. The order and arrangement of the layout is a credit to the technicians. Since I have vision problems that necessitate a precise positioning of the page, I am not yet a fan of reading magazines on PC or iPad, especially when I want to have a written pattern upon which I can mark my place. Printing from an emag seems to produce a less clear, smaller print instruction page and I have not found a way to work around that .... yet. Thank you Interweave and F-W Media for such a beautiful product.

The magazine format us unacceptable. Need PDFs. Review by Christine

After some Googling, I managed to work out the security settings of my Mac so I could load the mags.
BUT please let it be known I am really unhappy with the mag format you use. Why not have PDFs?? I will purchase no more mags from you and will advise all my many knitting friends to stay well clear. Your program format is really unwieldy, and not being able to easily print it out completely to allow reading away from the Mac is not acceptable. Having each mag as an executable disc image is definitely not on! I am very unhappy with your mags and regret purchasing them. I wanted them for the knitting patterns and the format they are in makes it very difficult for me to use them for what I purchased them for. A VERY BIG thumbs down!!!

doesn't dissappoint Review by Peg

As with all the interweave publications I have purchased over many years, your quality is superior. I can't knit fast enough to use all the ideas I get from you, but it gives me a greater insight into all of my knitting . I love the attention to detail and the willingness to try techniques a new way. Elizabeth Zimmerman would be proud.

Love the patterns - wish the PC and iPad versions could be interchanged Review by Brenda

I've knitted voltage and constant cables so far ... love them both. I do wish that I had realized that I couldn't download to my iPad with this order. In the future, I'll order them through the iPad because that's where I work from - not sitting in front of my computer.

But saving the PDF version and then working with that on the iPad also works.

Sockupied Spring 2014 eMag Review by Joanne

Very impressed with the e magazine. Like the patterns and there is a great deal of extra information that you would not get with a hard copy.

Windows download problem solution Review by Beryl

Love this latest Sockupied eMag, especially the math behind the designs, but I nearly didn't get it. Like Barbara & Cathy I too had problems downloading it but didn't get such prompt Customer Service as in the past. Apart from the initial acknowledgement of my request it was over 2 weeks before I got the help I needed. Maybe they were extra busy but the advice wasn't exactly pertinent to my problem of being unable to open/install the downloaded product in Windows, but had a lot of advice on digital products in general. I had tried downloading it a number of times to 3 different computers so it wasn't likely to be my computer at fault but I followed instructions to delete all my failed attempts & to install a new version of Adobe Air, which was exactly the same as the old one. I then noticed further instructions to save & not run & add the file extension .exe & this is what finally worked for me. I have never had to do this before with the many eMag products I have bought from Interweave & why should Windows users have to do that when Mac users already have the .dmg extension included with their purchase?
Incidentally I tried downloading the previous issue of Sockupied that is already installed on my computer & was fine when I originally bought it, only to find the .exe extension was missing from that too. I hope Interweave soon fix this glitch as I am still steaming over all the wasted time & extra data usage.

Spring 2014 Review by Ellen

Great patterns and the combination of math and knitting was an interesting concept. See, I guess our parents were right when they said that we'd use math someday. At least it's "pretty" math!

Wish download would have worked Review by Cathy

I purchased the download and it would not work on my PC or Mac. Customer support never responded to my request for help, but did refund my money. I then purchased from the Sockupied iPad app and that download worked! Am knitting "Voltage" for my electrical engineer husband :)
