A varied collection of socks by different designers. There is a pair of tvaandstrickning sock that are beautiful, traditionally styled - not fitted which I assume is traditional, and challenging; bohus-inspired socks that are very attractive and being worsted-weight, quick to knit; Gansey, Finnish, Norwegian, and Icelandic socks beautifully interpreted by illustrious designers; a couple of Estonian designs both of Nancy Bush's usual high standards; Scottish kilt hose and Sanquhar socks, both worthy to represent their traditions; and more. There are also just a few cringe-worthy designs, notably the "Chinese Zodiac Socks" , ill-fitting tabi socks with really poor calligraphy on the ankles. It really wouldn't hurt to omit some parts of the world from the sock-knitting compendium! ( )
