Book Review – Shoreland Socks by Hunter Hammersen

Shoreland Socks by Hunter Hammersen, softback published by Pantsville, available in the UK from www.searchpress.com ISBN 97817325229, price 19.99.

A beautiful selection of socks to knit. I particularly like the textured patterns. These are socks everyone will love to wear. However at just seven patterns, this is rather pricey if there are some you don’t like. However that is unlikely to happen. Gorgeous patterns, gorgeous yarns, gorgeous photography. I love the little addition of the circumference chart for socks so that you can record the size of loved ones for whom you are knitting. Abbreviations are kept to a minimum and the instructions include charts. One thing hat might irritate some knitters is that she does not give exact needle size, but a range and you have to do that swatch to work out your gauge. The patterns are worked in the round. It’s not for beginners, but this will set the knitting juices flowing.
