After so many years of knitting (and designing) socks, I have countless books and patterns in my library, and I find it hard to get excited about most "new" sock designs I come across. While I'm not sure that I'll be casting on any of the designs from this issue any time soon, I can definitely see adding some of these to my queue for knitting in the not-so-near future. All six sock designs are well-presented within the issue; it seems that there was great care in selecting each one to cater to a variety of sock-knitting preferences. There was a nice range of basic socks (Enduring Sock, Lida Rose), intermediate (Daisy Field Socks, Time Traveler Socks, Thyme Marches On), and the show-stopping technique-based True North DK colorwork socks by Lucy Neatby.

After so many years of knitting under my belt, I am always pleased when I can learn something new which helps me hone my craft, and I definitely picked up some useful tidbits to sharpen my sock-knitting skills in this issue. I found many handy tips in Kate Atherley's Knit Durable Socks article, and the product spotlights on wool washes and breed-specific sock yarns were eye-catching and interesting. Jennifer Crowley Raymond's short article about vintage knitting patterns contained a list of extremely useful resources, for those of you who are vintage pattern enthusiasts.
