    Simply enchanting

    When my sister and I first looked through this book we we're both laughing out loud at the incredible, personality filled sock creatures Daniel has created. His photographic setting are just plain fun! I have made several and more are ready to emerge- its amazing how much fun they are to make. Uses basic hand sewing - children age 8 and up could do this with adult supervision. I highly recommend it. Even if you don't sew the photos in this book will make a great coffee table addition and guaranteed to make you smile

    must have for crafty folks - and those who wish to be crafty!

    This is such a great book - me and my 8 year old daughter have poored over it - we have gone through 4 pairs of socks this weekend (she takes one of each pair, I take one and we see what we come up with). Even if you are not crafty - it is a great coffee table book - I would love to see Daniel pair with a childrens author and put out a childrens book with his socks as the characters! more, more, more, please!<BR/><BR/>OK, off to the dollar store to buy more socks.....
