Inspiration? yes. Right size/pattern? read on...,

This review is from: Knitting Socks With Handpainted Yarn (Paperback)
I enjoy knitting with hand painted yarn. The book is comprehensive and informative, in its descriptions of a variety of hand painted/space coloured, yarns; their tendency to "pool" single colour when knitting in the round, and various ways to avoid it.
Where the book is a total let down is its sizing; many patterns with one/two sizes only ! (and how many ladies wear UK size 3 shoe?); not a problem, I have recalculated pattern to my size. One star off.
Mistakes: just too many. Please have a look at the erratum page at Interweave Press, even the cover chevron pattern has got mistakes in it! Another star off.
Otherwise, a very interesting and inspirational book!

I object to the comment made by this re-viewer re : how many ladies wear size 3 uk shoes, this person makes those of us who have small feet seem like freaks! Well actually I for one wear size 3 and I might add that I find it very difficult to find decent footwear in my size, and so to find anything that can accommodate me is WONDERFUL!

Perhaps you misunderstood my intention, the criticism related to the lack of sizes /pattern COMBINATIONS not the size 3 itself; (which, incidentally, is not really very common, is it?).
As well as many mistakes which luckily are by now corrected (newer printings are OK).
BTW: my daughter wears size 3 shoes, but including pattern in ONE size only, and this being size 3 is not exactly hmmm... appropriate, in an "inspirational " book, is it?
Some patterns are easily adapted, others are not!
I wear size 7/8 UK; so cheer up, by your standards...I am ...
just a normal knitter!
Good luck in your knitting projects, threre are REALLY lots of patterns for dainty ladies! :)
