Just okay. Probably a sock knitter would gasp and die at a few of these patterns but...I'm not a sock knitter.

My nephew requested socks and I bought the yarn. Now I just need to find the perfect socks for him. He will be leaving (maybe) in May to be an English Teacher in a foreign country. This has been his dream. I would like to get some nice socks made for him. Even If I have to mail them to him. The socks in the book are very nice and a couple are plain, but seem feminine.

I saw some interesting patterns in this book, but nothing that wow'ed me. I think her patterns would show detail better in solid yarn choices, bit most were knit with variegated yarn. Her designs seemed geared towards a larger foot/fit. I would be concerned that many of the patterns would have to be altered to fit me. I am glad that this is on my library's shelves, but I would not purchase it myself.

Pretty patterns which make good use of her gently variegated yarn. There are some lovely touches on heel flaps and toes, but her design esthetic is fairly specific - if you like geometric patterns and textures and smaller motifs, this collection will be right up your alley. Clear technique photos and nice FO pictures. Socks offered in multiple sizes.
Advanced patterns of many lovely socks. Need to learn the basics of sock knitting first! However, if one IS going to the trouble of knitting socks they should be fabulous and these would be.

I bought this book because it had a couple of very different and beautiful patterns. I can't wait to get them on my needles!
