I've been wanting to expand my sock repertoire to include colorwork, but I can't decide which to make first, the Norwegian Rose Socks, Sneaky Argyle, or Stjärnblommesockor. They're all gorgeous, and there's a sock for every skill level. WoOt!
One of the great features of this book is the chart at the beginning of each sock category. It lists the degree of difficulty for each pattern and any special techniques that are required. There are lots of illustrations and the index has a thumbnail page of all the patterns, something I find very helpful. The charts aren't written out, but I consider that a plus. I don't know if/how many corrections will eventually be posted, but I'll take my chance with a chart any day. A chart doesn't lie.
Wendy, you hit this one out of the park. Toe-Up Socks for Every Body--Adventurous Lace, Cables, and Colorwork, is gorgeous. My only problem is deciding which pair to knit first.
