Socks a la Carte

Socks a la Carte: Pick and Choose Patterns to Knit Socks Your WaySocks a la Carte: Pick and Choose Patterns to Knit Socks Your Way by Jonelle Raffino
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve been knitting socks for *years,* but I bought this book because the idea of it was intriguing. I bought a used copy for a good price … and was glad I did. I’d have been disappointed to pay full price for it. While I love the idea, and some of the heel and toe treatments were new to me, I found a couple of errors in the book, and the knitted samples are all done in a variated red yarn that makes seeing the patterns very difficult. Worth it if you’re already comfortable knitting socks, and if you can find it for a discount price.
