Description Reviews
 
The evolution of footwear from the eighth century BC to the present provides fascinating social history. Nancy Bush has delved into museum archives to find the best socks from a host of folk-knitting traditions.

She has designed 18 delightful pairs of socks inspired by these traditions, and the result is patterns for sturdy boot socks, handsome knicker socks, lacy stockings, kilt hose and more. A section on techniques includes an unsurpassed collection of heel turnings and toe shapings - and it's all here for knitters of all levels of experience.
