After a good initial read you're able to start to knit a nice pair of socks, knowing well they will fit - as she starts you off with good advice on gauge, number of stitches to cast on and how much to knit - and to end up with a good looking sock with an added design twist of Neatby's.
This book has been hard to get from Amazon (sells fast) but worth the wait - it's got alot in it and worth it.
This book has lots of useful sock-making tips (different cuffs, toes, and heels, among other things), and is written specifically for using the "self-patterning" yarns out on the market. There are 6 patterns with variations.
What I didn't like about the book is that you would be well-advised to use some sort of book easel to hold it up while using, as the book cover is oriented in one direction while the inside of the book is oriented in the opposite direction. Also, there is a lack of good illustrations for the technique section. And the directions could use more spaces between paragraphs for ease of reading. All in all, this makes the book somewhat frustrating to use. Hopefully this will be corrected in future editions.
Good book for a passionate sock knitter, but NOT worth $75 on the used market. Amazon's own site shows that you can probably get it at your local Borders (use the "in store pick up" function) for around $20. I hope it is soon available again through the regular Amazon site.

Great sock book. Small enough to keep in knitting bag, yet packed with patterns and instruction.Published 19 months ago by HW
I am a big Lucy Neatby fan. Lucy is a very creative artist. Her teaching DVDs are excellent. She might not appeal to everyone but she's a favorite of mine.Published on September 26, 2013 by Dragon Wizard
