Vogue The Ultimate Sock Book????
I checked this book out of the library to preview and fell in love at first glance. So, armed with a $5 coupon to Amazon, plus free shipping, I looked over the reviews. The Amazon site and another site both claim the book is full of errors. Anyone have experience with this book? There's very little errata posted for it

I went to this site and emailed them asking them about errors and corrections. You might want to email them also.

one of the sites that reported errors said she emailed them the problems and the corrections she made. they never replied or made corrections. I have the book from the library and can recheck it 3 times. Surely in that time I can give it a good look over and try a couple of patterns. All in all, the reviews were bad because of errors. I'm new to sock knitting and can't work my way through mistakes in a book. My own mistakes are hard enough!

I don't have that book but I have the baby blanket one and I found errors in both the blankets I knitted so never again will I be paying for the Vouge books.
