Kntting Knee Highs-Barb Brown

Book Description

In this book, author Barb Brown takes sock knitting to new heights by teaching you the ins and outs of knitting kneehighs, a popular sock, but one that needs more explanation than most books and magazines give it. Here, in the first book on the topic, you will learn how to size these socks as you knit them, with 20 great patterns to pick from. Each of the 20 knee-high patterns comes with a variation that features that design in a different color and style of sock, perfect for knitters who want to mix up their sock drawer.
**Please note that this book is not explicitly Christian in content. If you are looking for a Christian Living titles featuring a large amount of faith-centered content, this titles may not be the best selection for you.
This is a lovely knitting book.  It includes 20 wonderful sock patterns that are not limited to knee highs.  There are many variations included for anklets and leg warmers.  The book includes clear and easy to follow directions for adjusting length and formulas for sizing.  The numerous photos clearly show the finished product and are of high quality.  Most of the patterns are fully charted, they are also largely done in color work.   This is a book best suited for experienced knitters as it does not cover any how to information beyond adjusting for size.  The designs themselves are very beautiful and should provide a  challenge for most knitters.  If you are an experience knitter and are looking for sock patterns suitable for gifting then this is a must have book. However, if you are a new knitter or are at all intimidated by intricate colorwork, cables and very textured patterning then please look elsewhere.  Having said that, if you are a confident knitter, any one of the patterns in this book would make a cherished gift for any lady on your list.  I highly recommend "Knitting Knee-Highs".

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze® so that I may review the book.
