Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Nice socks Nice variety of socks, easy to follow patterns, great how-to directions, but I gave only a 4 star. Make sure you have a extra fine gauge loom if you plan to follow the patterns in this magazine. I did not know this and I have a regular gauge. 02/25/2014
