I love graphic patterns and the book is full of them – executed both in colour and in texture. The pair of socks on the cover is not just vibrant but has very interesting sole construction which probably was the strongest enticement to buy this book.
I knit a lot but apart from couple of relatively easy sock patterns I am not an experienced sock knitter. The explanations in the book are very clear and there are some very useful tips on stranded knitting small items in the round and general sock knitting techniques.
It is great fun to browse through Stephanie Van Der Linden's book and I am looking forward to knitting some of the socks in it. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone in love of colour knitting even if they do not have experience. A sock is a small project and a great way to experiment with new techniques.

Like the patterns. Some of the yarn recommend does not appear to be hardwearing. All the brands are american so of little use to us Brits.It would have been helpful to state wraps of yarn per inch or centimetre. Patterns are clear and easy to follow.
The size of sock only comes in two sizes, not always the same two sizes so if the pattern you like is not in the shoe size you want then you will have to be an accomplished knitter in order to adjust your needle size in order to create the sock size that you want.
In summery: patterns good; yarn irrelevant; sizing a bit hit/miss.

I love the patterns in this book. I've finished the first pair and can't wait for the next. Can't wait for my sock drawer to look as colourful

This book is wonderful to browse through even if you don't intend to. Use the patterns. Myself I don't know which one to knit first.
