Book Description

17 Jan 2014 The Craft Library
Knits for Fab Feet & Cosy Toes aims to give you all the information you need to start creating beautiful socks and there are projects to suit all abilities and tastes. Not only are socks the ultimate in 'impress your friends' knitting, they have many other advantages. A sock project often consists of one ball of yarn and some needles, so it is perfect for tucking in a bag and knitting on the go. Socks are not a huge undertaking and so needn't cost the earth to knit, nor will they take months to complete. Possibly best of all, most of us wear socks every day so a pair of hand-knitted socks is a unique and personal gift that you know will be appreciated.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not sure these have been test knitted 8 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because of the adorable 3d penguin socks on the cover. I thought they would be a great gift for my daughter who is a huge penguin fan.

It took me an age to track down the wool - but didn't mind because I liked the socks so much - but that was just the start of my problems.

On the cover the image clearly shows that this a band of rib, then a band of stocking stitch before you start the penguin.

Not according to the pattern - it tells you to rib, and then do the motif. The warning bells should have started then...

I persevered and finished the penguins - using the chart. And then onto the joining row for double pointed needs. 'Knit to and place marker at point shown by orange line on Chart A'... Guess what - no orange line on the chart.

The next line says - K14... Right then... So no clue where to start the heel flp.

I gave up - and she now has some 3d penguin wrist warmers for the winter.

I won't be trying any other patterns and will send this book to the charity shop with a note for any potential purchaser to check patterns carefully before embarking on a search for wool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely photographs and inspiring book 3 Sep 2008
Format:Paperback
This book gives detailed instructions on knitting socks, casting on, knitting in the round, grafting etc. Unusually it is not limited to one supplier of knitting wool - a real bonus.

There are 25 interesting designs including aran and 6 ply sock weight yarn - all very wearable for children and adults. Helpful size guide to link to shoe size. There are socks with pockets for knitted teddy, plain socks, self-patterned yarn socks, slouch and trainer socks, socks with toes - something for everyone - which should help both the novice and the experienced knitter. The latter could try the colour motif patterns. There are two felted slipper sock patterns using Rowan wool but the cost of the yarn would be about 32 at retail prices!!

There is a very useful section at the end to help to design your own socks; this is also useful in explaining basic techniques and variations on them.

All in all - a book I would recommend - although I don't know if the patterns have been test-knitted by anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars fab feet and cosy toes 28 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback
Wonderful book, bargain price and in great condition (not sure if I'm rating the book or the service!) - plan to knit about 9 of the patterns, have knitted the celtic ones already (very few of the patterns are cute like the penguins, most are practical but fancy enough to be interesting) I am rarely pushed into purchasing patterns but this one is a charmer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sock book! 31 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback
I have several sock knitting books -- this one has the most number of wearable patterns. They are also not too complicated for someone who has only ever knitted ribbed or plain socks in a single colour, in fact I am quite tempted to get out of my comfort zone and try something new! Clear instructions and alternative techniques for cast-on, toes and heels. If only it was spiral-bound and small enough to fit in a handbag...then it would perfect!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual 12 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has unusual sock patterns. It is quite nice but I doubt I will knit them, but thats just because of my taste. If you like knitting socks a bit off the wall then this book would suit.
