Nice book - if you're into Christmas stockings,
This review is from: Christmas Stockings: Holiday Treasures to Knit (Paperback)
Christmas stocking have never been a tradition in my family. Still, when my friend Lynn Gate's stocking was chosen to be the cover sock for this book, I had to check it out. My conclusion - if you're a knitter with a need or a yen for Christmas stockings, this is a very inspirational tome. There's tremendous variety in the stockings presented from a felted, hot colors stocking knit up in Noro to some delicate lace affairs. All of the instructions are for stockings knit from the top down and most of the stockings have traditional gusseted heels. Of course, the best part of knitting these gems is that you only have to knit one - no second sock syndrome.
Bottom line - a good book for intermediate or better knitters who want to knit Christmas stocking with more complexity and pizazz than the free patterns on the internet.
