Small, portable, and with enough variety in the knitting to keep them interesting, socks are ideal projects for the traveling knitter. Bush (Folk Socks, Folk Knitting in Estonia) is a well-known teacher and researcher in the area of ethnic knitting. This is a collection of 18 projects inspired by her travels in the United States and abroad. Understanding that the traveling knitter may not have on hand the yarn recommended in a pattern, she includes a dandy table of all popular sock yarns with information on each that makes it easy to substitute yarns. Each project includes complete instructions, charts, and full-page illustrations all packed into a sturdy, covered-spiral binding. For all popular knitting collections.
