Review quote

Nancy's book was first published back in 1994 and is said to have kicked off the sock knitting phenomenon. This updated edition is packed with 18 patterns for socks, but these aren't just old socks! They're socks with heritage, showcasing a host of Northern European traditions. There are loads of variation including pure cream Latvian socks worked in lace, Estonian socks with twisted travelling stitch braid detail and patterned tops, and some fabulous red and white Finnish socks that even Father Christmas would be proud of!-Folk Socksshow more
