- Confusing Review by Dagmar
Some more stars woul I give as an appreciation for this good construction idea of a sock. And at least I like the Lady!
The construction principle is not difficult to understand, as an advanced knitter you might do it just by picking the idea and adapting it to your own pattern.
BUT - there are too many negative aspects, at least for me:
The demonstration should have been made on the accompanying pattern to show the upcoming problems especially with the two-strand-trapping at the sides.
I did not understand how I should know when to start the increasing for the gusset adapted to my ankle-circumference, I did not find out, how to fit the footlength.
I would have liked to see, how she would repair a heel-section.
Furthermore I did not quite understand her calculation of stitchcounts.

- Nice product...made so much more difficult then necessary. Review by Kim
The video and pattern are not always the same, but as an experienced knitter I could adapt.
The problem I had was that when I went to the video for clarification on how to properly do something, the instructor tossed in at least a dozen different 'shortcuts' that had nothing to do with the pattern at hand...zipping back and forth between Continental and English, knitting backwards, etc. I'm impressed enough with the fact she came up with the pattern. I do not need to be dazzled with her prowess. If I wanted a class on shortcuts that might come in handy later, I'd buy that class.
Thus, the video confused more than clarified.
I'm now on my 3rd pair. Nice sock, now that I'm not baffled by the stuff that has nothing to do with the actual pattern.

- Good thing the pattern comes with a video. Review by Bluetoespinner
The pattern is very difficult to understand. It could have been written out more simply. It is way too descriptive than necessary.
I had to refer to the video several time to understand what the pattern meant. As far as the video goes, it would have been nice to see her knit with two colors like the written pattern describes.
Once you get through the first sock, second sock is a breeze because it finally makes sense, but the first sock created a headache.
