Most of it is way over my head, I'm not at the level of knitting where I can even understand most of what's in here. If you are an expert knitter, you'd probably find it interesting and useful. None of the patterns pictured were sufficiently intriguing that I wanted to try harder to understand how they were done (or to commission them from the expert knitter in the family).

This is a very nice collection of sock patterns by a diverse group of designers. The bonus DVD makes it easy to see how some of the techniques are executed. Now which socks to make first!
