This is NOT a book about knitting socks although there are some patterns in the back. This is a book about DYEING yarns to get what you want. It's also a book about handspun yarns. Not your ordinary sock knitter's fare but a tastey look at spinning, blending, dyeing & knitting real natural fibre

Still reading and rereading this! Looks like some great dye information and color use tips and the socks are fun!

Lovely photographs, but sock knitting section of the book is not layed out well for easy reference. Was delighted to learn about flat-knitted socks and found the dyeing and spinning sections interesting.

This is a great book for knitting with your own handspun yarn. I am a beginning knitter and I have made 2 pairs of socks now without difficulty!
