Reviews - What do customers think about The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook: Dyeing, Painting, Spinning, Designing, Knitting?

Even better book than I thought  Jun 4, 2008
I love that this book shows so many pictures of the roving, the yarn and then the sock. Great. Love it.
Gorgeous book, can't make that heel no matter what  May 20, 2008
This is indeed a gorgeous book and I love all the information and was anxious to try a different kind of heel that appears to be so versatile and repairable, but I could not get the heels to come out correctly. I ripped them out over and over and still they are a sorry mess. I have gone back to the traditional type of sock heel but hope someday to figure out what the book is trying to convey.
A fun read, but not for the novice knitter  Feb 17, 2008
A knitter of only afghans, I read this book after being inspired to try a pair of socks by some of the humorous blogs. The chatty and easy writing mistakenly convinced me to try her basic sock pattern as my first. Turning the heel, and an important omission in the directions earlier were the death of my attempt with these directions. This book is not for the sock virgin.
Great book!  Oct 19, 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As a beginning sock knitter, finally a book with multiple sock patterns, including one that you knit flat without those darn dpns, that is till you get to the heel and toe. I'm tired of sticking myself inthe eye or nose with dpn's! Written clearly and concisely, a joy to your book collection
The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook  Aug 9, 2007
The directions for mixing dyes and using them to dye and paint roving and yarn are excellent. They are clearly written and illustrated. The directions for socks are equally well written and easy to follow. The photographs are wonderful and make me want to make almost all of the projects!
