- Fascinating and fun socks Review by Kendra
This book is just full of new things to try!
Op-Art socks is a very well laid-out and organized book.
There are lots of well done photos for each project with wonderful, bright, clear color.
It makes it easy to really see what the socks are going to look like from all angles. My favorite thing about this book is that there are plenty of photos and they're all very well done.
I have started knitting the Feny pair of socks and I'm just loving it so far.
I have always just used the same-ol' pattern for socks and this book provides me with new, challenging yet easy-to-understand ways to make socks. It's just so wonderful to trust the pattern and see the socks come together so perfectly.
I looked through the book about 20 times before I could decide on which one I wanted to make! They're all so beautiful and different and inspiring.

- Amazing Designs Review by Anne
I was so attracted to the variety of color work designs and the different methods for constructing socks.
I have started working on the Feny -- mosaic design. Just a note: there is a small error in the chart on rows 5, 9 and 13. In the center there are 5 CC stitches in a row, but they should be alternated as follows:
slip CC, knit MC, Slip CC, knit MC, slip CC, knit MC, slip CC
Since this pattern involves only using one color at a time, the chart cannot be correct as printed.
The directions are very clear and it is fun to try a different method of constructing a sock.
