Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Schurch here builds on her Sensational Knitted Socks(2005), with more patterns and more complex designs, including a good selection of beautiful tessellated and mosaic patterns that turn plain socks into works of art. As in the first volume, she emphasizes knitting techniques she's found most effective for sock knitting; an index makes it easier to find patterns in the stitch dictionary. The one disadvantage to both volumes is the binding. With hard use, these books will be taking a trip to the bindery in short order and would be much more usable with interior spiral binding. Still, an essential purchase for public libraries interested in supporting the growing popularity of sock knitting.
