Reviews - What do customers think about Vogue Knitting on the Go: Socks Two?
Inadequate instructions mar an otherwise nice book Aug 13, 2007
There are some nice sock patterns in this book, but I agree with the other reviewers who have commented on the poor quality of the instructions. My specific complaint is about the pattern for the Domino Squared socks. It's an unusual pattern done with an interesting technique. However, the instructions are missing any guidance as to what the dimensions of the squares are supposed to be, which makes it very difficult to figure out if you're on track or to troubleshoot. I'm a seasoned enough sock knitter that I have some idea of how things should fit. I don't mind a challenge, but I'd rather have the challenge come from the technical aspects of the knitting than from figuring out the directions. Frankly, I expect more from Vogue Knitting. If you're looking for a good book of sock patterns, this is not it.
Review of Socks Two by Vogue Knitting Jan 4, 2007
Excellent little book and a variety of socks to make.
A good addition to your sock pattern library Nov 6, 2006
This little book has a nice variety of patterns and excellent instructions on how to make them. Having said that, to my eye there's no single pattern in the book that I would rate at 5 stars (well, maybe those medieval knee socks). I could justify buying this book based on the socks for children more than on the socks for adults. There are so many excellent sock books around these days. In my opinion, this book is a little below the excellent level due to the designs themselves.
Buyer's Regret Jun 15, 2005
I agree with the reviewer who questioned the patterns in this book. I am an experienced knitter, wrestling with the construction of Red Hot Chili Peppers. If the other patterns in this book are as impossible, I shall be very disappointed with Vogue.
Has anybody knitted a pattern from this book? Nov 10, 2003
I'm wondering if anybody even tested the patterns in this book before printing. How did they knit a 2 colored pattern, knitted in the round, without any specific instructions. Take the Rib and Panel socks (Red Hot chili Peppers), knitted in panels using 2 colors. I admit the pictures are pretty but the instructions are another thing.
