I have taken only a brief look at this, but it's wonderful for any knitter with an interest in historic knitting practices. Lots of detail on various heels, and the whys and wherefores of sock knitting. Not recommended for the new modern knitter; as stated in the introduction, the author assumes that the knitter posesses basic knitting skills, and in the Edwardian era, crafters were not led by the hand.
A terrific resource for any experienced sock knitter, or anyone with an interest in historic patterns. Looking forward to using this in the practical sense, too!
