Review:

Just like Alice in Wonderland, this new knitting book is an exciting fanciful new enchanting sock pattern book filled with origins rooted in legend, myth, and fairy tales... Detailed instructions with step by step photographed images for "pick up wrap", "kitchener stitch", "bead placement" and "clustered stitches", just to name a few. Twenty fanciful patterns, all beautifully photographed in a sturdy binding for safe-keeping. The illustrations are created by the author, as the front cover where you see the real "Tintagel" socks with pearls laid into the original illustrated graphic, just superb work all round, a treasure to behold. Once upon a time - The Enchanted Sole with "legendary patterns fit for queens, and pixies, and alchemists" is Janel Laidman's latest book for sock knitters. Spun, seemingly magically, from Ms. Laidman's talented hand, this book is a regal treat for experienced sock knitters. With designs for sox whose design roots lie in tales of the gothic medieval and King Arthur, but still quite wearable in our modern times, Janel Laidman has created a feast of patterns with names like Firebird, Atlantis, Snow Queen, Changeling, Tristan & Isolde, Pixie and more, with unusual construction and promises of exceptional fit. - Sharon Watterson Squidoo.com --squidoo.com

Just like Alice in Wonderland, this new knitting book is an exciting fanciful new enchanting sock pattern book filled with origins rooted in legend, myth, and fairy tales. One passion for intrigue woven with words has semblance to a knitter's passion to create. "Legendary socks for adventurous knitters." Fantasy Woven in Verse -- the story of Alice in Wonderland was an adventure story spun in a dream while Alice slept. There is nothing more enticing to a knitter exploring a new town than to spy a graphic sign with yarn and needles signaling a yarn shop. Like Alice, dreaming by the riverside, yarn shops and their communities of knitters are spinners of dreams. Indeed, the world of the passionate knitter is filled with fantasy and illusion. The Enchanted Sole has patterns for a Queen: "Galadriel ruled over the Elven land of Lothlorien with wisdom and grace," these socks are laced up the back and tied at the knee with satin ribbons. La dame a la licorne, a series of medieval tapestries is the origin for Ms. Laidman's "La Licorne" socks designed with a banner at the top proclaiming "to my only desire" in French "a mon seul desir" with a field of embroidered flowers and a bunny peeking out from the heel, could it be Alice's flummoxed rabbit? The Enchanted Sole -- pattern fascinations for sock knitters where dreams were the incentive and now can be real.
