Whether you already enjoy knitting socks or want to start now, I would recommend this book. It includes patterns for just about every type of sock: short, long and in between; walking styles and pretty styles; textured designs, colour patterns and fairly plain, adaptable designs; there are socks knitted from the top down, socks knitted from the toe up and even one pair that you can knit either way. Precilla's Dream Socks even has instructions for different gauges which means that you can knit yourself a pair using whatever yarn you happen to have or like. As it says on the cover, there are 25 designs and there are 13 designers to ensure a good range of styles. The instructions are comprehensive so you don't need to know much about knitting to get started, and there are further details at the back about casting on, working in the round, grafting, decreasing and increasing. The photography is clear, so you can see the details clearly. All in all, I'd say that this was the only socks book you'd ever need - not that I am likely to stop here!
