Until this book arrived, I used to recommend Nancy Bush's "Folk Socks" as a must-have book to all aspiring sock knitters. Nancy Bush knows socks and writes excellent instructions for different kinds of heels, toes, fit, finish and folk design. Now, Nancy has written helpful knitting tips as well as some cute patterns in a ready-to-go book that is a real winner.
For those of you who don't knit socks, these can be an addiction. Socks are a small, portable knitting project with many interesting design tasks (heels, toes, cuffs) that lend themselves to much creativity. And you end up with warm, comfy, custom fit footwear. ALL my socks are hand-knit because they are so wonderful to wear.
There's even a sock knitter's mail list, where members exchange patterns and helpful information on techniques and materials.
So whether if you fall into the "sock besotted" category, or aspire to knit socks, you won't go wrong with this book. It's specifically designed to fit into most handbags along with a sock project, has helpful tips, and is written by one of the BEST sock authorities, Nancy Bush. DON'T MISS IT!
