Welcome to my "yarn place" in cyberspace.
I wrote a sock book
in 2002 where you use two circular needles
to knit your socks,
one or two socks at a time.
It remains a favorite among sock knitters today!
The book was written to knit socks the "new" way, TOE UP SOCKS.
With detailed directions for knitting with
two circular needles.
However, it also includes a
of the sock, if that is what you prefer.
no "heel flaps".
The socks are beautifully seamless with no gusset line.
Crazy Toes & Heels Sock Book also includes:
Several different versions of sock toes...
Short row heels and toes...
A replaceable or "afterthought" heel...
Crazy Toes & Heels
Sock knitting book is the
"original" any gauge sock formula book.
USE: Any yarn...
KNIT AT: Any gauge...
AND MAKE: Any size sock...
This is not a "book of patterns" that you have to make "as presented". The book is still a favorite for five years for knitters who want to learn to make a lovely generic sock that will perfectly fit you or the sock recipient, not the author of the pattern.
You can add lace, cables, or other features to the basic sock to make it uniquely "your sock".
"The book is packed with knitting tips and tricks, not only for knitting socks, but many which you can use for your other knitting projects too."
