No better book to learn sock knitting Review by Diane Friedman

Nancy Bush teaches history, vocabulary, technique. She gives you the tools to create your own well-fitting socks with choices of toes and heels. All the patterns are written for double pointed needles, top down. Going through the first 69 pages is like having a private and intensive sock knitting class with one of North America''s Sock Goddesses. The beautiful and historically inspired patterns are icing on the cake.
