Hi! I am sorry that you have had problems to understand my book & the way it is written. When you refer to the 2nd round of the pattern of Chunky Socks, you may have missed the large green letters that say "NOW FLIP THE FOUNDATION CHAIN SO THAT YOU ARE WORKING ALONG THE BACK OF THE STITCHES THAT YOU HAVE JUST MADE" along with the accompanying photograph that details this quite clearly.
The projects in the book follow a progressive learning curve and are not intended to be "kitch" (tacky???) at all, introducing a new technique etc. as you progress. I am really sorry that you are disappointed in the book where so many others e.g. on Twitter & Facebook & those who have taken the trouble to post a review to date, are singing its praises. I would be more than happy to buy your book from you as you no longer have a need for it. Ali Campbell.
