I entered a draw on the CRAFT blog/website and
was lucky enough to be the winner of this book!
I have made a few pairs of socks but have to admit they haven't been my favourite thing to do - mainly because it's so very difficult to actually finish the second sock of the pair. This book solves that entire problem by showing you how to knit both of them at the SAME time on a circular needle! Not only that, but because they are knitted from the toe up there is less danger of running out of yarn before you're done. Win/win I would say!!
There are 15 sock designs in the book. Another of the pluses to this process is that you are able to try on the socks as you knit to get a perfect fit. The author, Melissa Morgan-Oakes, has another book too - "2-at-a-Time Socks'. Specs are: 'Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks' published by Storey Publishing, c2010, ISBN 978-1-60342-533-9.
Thanks CRAFT and Storey Publishing!!
