Awesome! Many of these patterns are way more sophisticated or complex than those of professional designers. There are about 6 I'd just love to try. Most are works of art to be admired.

This has a lot of very pretty and interesting sock ideas. The only problem I had was that because my feet are nonstandard in size, I would have a difficult time time adapting the patterns to fit. But I would definitely recommend this book, especially for intermediate and experienced knitters who want to try their hands at knitting socks. If nothing else, it has a lot of very nice pictures!!!

This is an awesome, creative book. Almost every sock is interesting. I made the socks on the cover (not for the faint of heart!). Most of the patterns are challenging, but there are also patterns for less experienced knitters, and the illustrations are really helpful. If you have knit socks before, this book will challenge and inspire you with new and creative ideas. It is not your granny's knitting!
