Books: Tausendschön - Das Lilane

Quite a while back I won the purple sock pattern book from Tausendschön in a giveaway and it has finally arrived!
It is a booklet containing six sock patterns that mainly seem easy to knit, as far as I can tell at first glance. (Here you can see a list of them. I especially like the Rapunzel socks.) I must say I am glad the instructions include charts because German knitting instructions just confuse me.

Regina Satta, the designer, is very popular among German knitters and I had heard of her booklets so often that I was keen to get my hands on one of them at some point. I have previously knit one of her patterns, Boxi, which I think is typical of her designs in its look and also in the ease with which you can knit her socks. You don't need to be an expert sock knitter, the patterns are simple to knit even though some may look daunting with the amount of cabling that's involved. To me, Satta is a designer of comfortable, easy knits. Sometimes they different designs are a bit too repetitive for me, though. If, however, easy, reliable patterns sound like your cup of tea, I recommend checking out her designs.
