Discover a new approach to sock knitting with Wendy D. Johnson and Socks from the Toe Up. This approach, made famous by her popular blog, will turn even the most reluctant knitter into a toe-up nut. Knitting a sock from the toe up saves yarn and always gives a perfect fit. And? No grafting!

With more than 20 fun and beautiful patterns, Socks from the Toe Up has a sock for every foot. Whether you like bold textures or hearts and flowers, delicate lace or Bavarian cables, you (and your feet) will be covered here.

Socks from the Toe Up is the hands-down best guide for toe-up socks.

5.0 out of 5 stars New to socks? Great place to start! July 24 2009
I have been knitting socks for many years. I learned cuff-down but eventually fell in love with toe-up! No more guessing about "will I run out of yearn before I finish the foot?" plus you can adjust as you go, if you need to. This book covers all the bases. Lots of pictures and clear explanations. Several methods taught plus heel and toe options. Makes the whole sock knitting process easy to learn. Heck, it makes learning to knit easy as there's a section on the basics of that too! The patterns are lovely with lots of scope for the imagination! You'll never look at knitting socks the same again! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Socks that Rock! July 27 2009
By Patricia Dion Pageau TOP 1000 REVIEWER
For a knitter, challenges are a many. But this book pushes the bounderies of The Art of Knitting Socks! Who said socks had to be dull and plain. Wendy Knits's book shows the techniques and step-by-step patterns to dismystify the knitting process of creating beautiful and even elegant socks. Coloured photograhs of each pattern gives the book a light and modern look. The tips and suggestions also offer help for those moments when a knitter doesn't know how to start, finish or decide on the next step with her masterpiece! Definitely a knitters bible for kniting socks that rock!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on toe-up socks! July 6 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book last year and learned how to knit socks for the first time. When I had trouble with my first heel, I emailed the author and she responded quickly and got me on my way. Clear and very well written with good tips on creating long-lasting socks. Nice patterns too, most of which are for fingering weight yarn, and a couple for sport weight.
