Book Description

April 20 2010
Learn to knit socks with confidence—and achieve beautiful results.

Socks are at the top of every knitter’s list of favorite projects: Quick to make, highly portable, and usually only requiring a ball of yarn or two, it’s easy to see why they love them. And The Sock Knitter’s Workshop is the essential companion for beginning and advanced knitters alike.

Expert sock knitters Ewa Jostes and Stephanie van der Linden share their sage wisdom on the essentials of sock knitting, beginning with an overview of materials and tools and the basics of the sock-knitting process. Knitters can mix and match from among many different methods of casting-on and knitting cuffs, heels, and toes to create their own unique designs that fit just right. With extensive step-by-step instructions and hundreds of illustrations plus fifteen patterns, this book provides sock knitters with inspiration and advice for all their projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive sock knitting book Dec 20 2011
By jd
Format:Paperback
As the title suggests, this book is akin to participating in a workshop for sock-knitting. The book is well-organized with excellent quality photographs and easy-to-understand wording. This book would be ideal for someone who probably is an intermediate knitter and already has some knowledge/experience in sock-knitting. Both cuff-down and toe-up socks are discussed with clear instructions and a variety of techniques. If you could only purchase one book on the topic of sock-knitting, this would be the one.

2.0 out of 5 stars So disappointing... May 23 2010
Format:Paperback
At first glance, this book looked terrific to me! So many techniques, nice photos, good advice on sock fit. I decided to try every technique, starting with the cast-ons at the beginning, and working my way through. I wanted to force myself to learn new techniques, instead of knitting socks the same way all the time. Once I began this project, I started to see the problems in the book, which I believe have to do with poor translation. Although I am an experienced knitter, and sock knitter, I have been left scratching my head many times, and I am only at the start of the chapter on heels. Many times I puzzled, "Just WHAT are they trying to say here?" What a disappointment! And it should be a disappointment to the authors and publishers also. It looks to me like the translators were not knitters. A knitter would have known when an instruction did not make sense. I will struggle along with this book, but a beginning sock knitter would probably never make socks again!

A great find. An excellent, technical sock book. A great addition to any sock knitter's library with lots of great explanatory photos.
