- Sock Designing Master Class by Ann Budd Review by NULL NULL
An EXCELLENT publication I will use forever. Ann is a superb teacher and speaker and I found the DVD to be an excellent learning tool; however, it could use a little help. First, the glint off Ann's glasses was very distracting. Second, showing the techniques from underneath the work in progress was very confusing, and lastly every now and then the technique being demonstrated would move out of the picture frame. I would recommend this book in a heartbeat.

- Sock Knitting Master Class Review by Deborah Silverman
I adore this book! The clearly written and descriptive text is unlike any other book I have seen about sock knitting. I even taught myself the Old Norwegian Cast-On from this book and I am strictly a visual learner! The illustrations are beautiful and there are instructions for heels and toes that I have not seen before. This book is going to be my new Sock Bible!! I think I had better buy a second copy right now as this first copy is going to quickly be worn out... Thank you, Ann Budd!! P. S. My sister in law is buying one this weekend!

- 100++++ Stars Ann Budd ROCKS! Review by Mickey Van Pelt
The DVD alone is amazing, I wish I would have had this when I first started knitting years ago, Ann Budd demonstrates the techniques like she is in my living room with me, I caught myself asking a question to my tv screen, and she actually demonstrated that in the next moment!! The book is beautifully done, the title says it all, Master Class in the techniques you will learn (from beginner up not just the hard stuff and masterpieces in the sock designs from the top Master designers today.

- Sock Knitting Master Class Review by Sue Reall
I pre-ordered this book and it came yesterday. If you are a sock knitter, as I am, you will love this book. It comes with a DVD which I have watched, and am going to watch again. It contains so much informaiton and Ann Budd shows you how to do techniques, explains the needles you can use, demonstrates various cast on, one of which I had not seen. The patterns are all different and use lots of techniques. I am looking forward to trying out most of the patterns and will try to follow her blog on this.
