Library Journal Review

Socks are fun to knit, but many knitters finish the first of a pair and lose interest. Enter the Christmas stocking an ideal gift, and you only have to knit one! This collection includes a great variety of patterns by leading knitwear designers. There are cabled socks, Argyle socks, Fair Isle and Intarsia socks, Victorian lace socks, and even a whimsical sock monkey Christmas stocking. Patterns are grouped by level of difficulty, and each includes complete instructions and full-page color illustrations. Also included is a chapter on designing your own. This is a real treasure for public libraries, as such patterns are normally found only in seasonal magazines not in the book form preferred by libraries. (c) Copyright 2010.
