this book is fantastic for that rainy day when your stuck indoors & having an artistic block! I began to make my first sock-creation he looked soooo cute I became hooked & made a further five. Now I have orders as my friends all want one! The book itself is superb! The author brings the little characters to life with fun quality photos. The step by step instructions are easy to follow with clear pitcures & explanations. Because of this book, i'm now happy when one of my socks goes missing! hehe!
