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.
