Projects include: baby bootees, toddler slippers, felted baby slippers, felted adult slippers, socks knit flat and seamed up, basic tubular socks on 3 needles, spiral socks with no heel to turn, ballerina style slippers, lace knee socks held up by ribbons, striped lace socks knit on 3 needles (shown on cover), beaded leg warmers, mock cable socks, actual fair isle socks (not faked with patterned yarn!) and several other lace or textured patterns.
One drawback, perhaps, is that in including so many forms of sock-knitting, there aren't actually very many patterns of actual socks knit in traditional styles. And while it claims to be for "novice knitters" it may intimidate real novices. On the other hand, there is something for everyone here.
Hopefully not all the patterns are like this. I'll give it one more shot on another pattern.
There are socks to be knitted with the magic loop, others which state you can use both DPNs and magic loop, and others which are for DPNs. There are toe down and toe up - which I like the sound of most, no fear of running out of yarn. There are some socks you have to seam - the Brits tend to use this method. There's even Mary Thomas's staggered rib socks worked toe up, brilliant concept - wear them so the rib stacks straight and the lack of heel makes no difference to their wearability.... and you don't wear the heel out fast.
There are a few pairs I will never make - the baby stuff, (cute), ballet slippers - why? cold! But on the whole they are appealing. What fun. I am going to start making socks - finally!
