“It’s not often that I scoop a book from the top of the review pile and take it home with me, and it’s even less common for me to sit down and read it right away…This book seems like just the right foundation for someone who’s ready to strike out on their own – even if the starting place is just switching out the heel or toe treatment for one that suits them better.” –Austen Gilliland, craft editor, CanadianLiving.com
“Ann Budd, a genius in our time…. Master Class is the right name! “ –KnittingScholar.com
“The facts alone will make you want this book: 15 of the knitting world’s best sock designers, 18 sock designs, Ann Budd talking basic how-tos and design tips and Clara Parkes talking sock yarn, and a 95 minute DVD. All of the technique and yarn information is so well organized and thought out that a knitter could read the book and not knit a single sock and still come away having learned a lot about sock knitting.” –Knitty.com
