Socks, Socks, Socks edited by Elaine Rowley
Oh, my, from the sublime to the nearly ridiculous (really! pig button noses on the toes!) there must be a sock for you in this book if you have EVER thought to knit socks. These patterns are the result of a contest run by the editors of "Knitter's" magazine, and the creative energy which resulted is amazing. I would have a hard time choosing a favorite sock pattern, but luckily I don't have to. I'll just start at the beginning and work my way into page upon page of designs from really talented knitters. Extremely well presented patterns, full color photography, basics, tips, graphs, diagrams and just plain fun. No excuses. Knit socks!
