Good if you've never knitted socks
on 27 December 2007
I am currently on my first pair of socks and got this book for christmas. It is nice enough, but feels almost too basic. All the patterns are for cuff down socks, with heel flaps. It does deal with using different weights of yearn, and also adding pattern and texture etc., but I did hope that there might have been a toe up sock in there and some short row heels. I will use it because there are some handy tips in there and also some nice patterns using some cable details. I would say though that if you have already knitted socks, I don't think this book is for you.
