Book Review: The Joy Of Sox

The Joy of Sox by Linda Kopp is fast becoming my favorite sock book. I haven't made one of the 30 patterns by 28 designers in it as yet but I know I will end up making many of them. Some are challenging; all are gorgeous. The book is hardcover with a spiral binding making it easy to knit with which is a definite plus. The photographs are lovely. Along with the patterns, there are lots of tips, all presented with a flirty innuendo. Some of the sock pattern names are A Roll in the Hay, Spring Fling and Last of the Red Hot Lovers. You get the idea. There are also a few treats such as the story of Crazy Aunt Purl's first time knitting socks and advice from Shannon Okey and Laura Bryant on how color repeats work when knitting socks.
