An easy-to-follow project with innovative, efficient techniques Review by Peg

The techniques are easy to understand and achieve. After more than 45 years of knitting, I am excited to learn some new methods of achieving the shape of the sock. This creates an interesting vehicle to a sock that sidesteps most of the less-than perfect parts of the traditional patterns while letting us know that there is a way to a completely customized fit. Cat Bordhi is a teacher to follow as her approach to knitting is clear and off the beaten path.
