Recommends it for: adventurous sock knitters
An exceptional sock pattern book, with clever & unusual designs & 60 (sixty!) patterns. Only complaint is that it lacks an explanatory overview paragraph for each pattern. Otherwise, vunderbar!

Wow! Innovative designs, challenges, fun, fantasy, beauty, all in one book. I'm sorry it took them this long to think of the idea and publish it.

I keep reading the patterns, deconstructing the designer's creative process hoping to spark my own. A keeper fer sure.

Interesting sock patterns, but many of them seem to be complicated just for the sake of being "fascinating" and don't even look comfortable to wear. The complications would make them impossibly tedious to know, IMHO.
Um. Conflicted. Tons and tons of errata, yes so many attractive sock patterns. But still, TONS (check out the book publisher's website, I'm not kidding) of errata, with more coming out still, almost a year later.
