Gorgeous photography of beautiful socks!! Most patterns are done in fingering weight yarn, so its not for the impatient knitter.

An excellent book for sock knitters! Included are instructions for lovely patterned socks, but also three different plain socks to try out, with toe and heel variations. The instructions are excellently explained and the charts are very clear. Tips for knitting with dpns, 2 circs, and magic loop are also detailed. I loved this book so much I went out and bought it! If you want to try toe-up or (like me) are already a fan and would like to learn some new techniques, this book is fantastic.

Hmmm, I wonder if I used enough superlatives? :)
