Different from what I expected
on 5 January 2011
Book is a bit different from what I expected - I know the title says knitting vintage socks, but I didn't expect a total, constant reference to Weldon's. I don't know who and what Weldon is, all I wanted was a book of patterns to try to knit some socks.
good points - has quite a variety of knitting patterns, instructions are relatively clear.
bad points - doesn't give in brackets, like most modern patterns do, the variation in sizes. It just says, adjust your yarn and knitting needles till you find the right size. Well... may be i'm a total knitting idiot, but I did expect some guidance in adjusting the number of stitches to adjust for the size. Sometimes may be just have a couple of balls of yarn that I wanted to use up.
