Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Gibson-Roberts is a serious student of sock knitting she is a researcher who has devoted a good part of her career to investigating sock-knitting techniques, especially sock knitting in the Eastern tradition. Her earlier books, Knitting in the Old Way and Ethnic Socks and Stockings, are classics in the field. Simple Socks referring to socks of simple construction now rightfully takes its place next to her earlier books. This is not a sock-pattern book but a study of options for creating a sock with a perfect fit using short-row techniques for shaping both heels and toes. The author's attention to detail and clear black-and-white illustrations are especially impressive. Highly recommended for large public libraries and for smaller public libraries where demand warrants. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
