The text and pictures are very clear, and they really do lead you through step-by-step. There are a couple of things that I haven't got the hang of yet (like stopping the "ladder" gap between double-pointed needles). The author's only suggestion is to use a circular needle, but if they don't make needles small enough, then what do you do?
Anyway, aside from a few small things, I am very, very happy with this book. With it I successfully knit my first pair of socks, and I intend to knit many more :)
This book breaks down each section of the sock, as well as the wools you use. I now know exactly how and why I am knitting. I do not have to rely on a pattern I can make my own.
If you have always wanted to try knitting socks then this is the book for you. It is thorough and easy to understand. If you already knit socks and want to know more this is a great book to add to your library.
Over all this is one of the best knitting books I own and I recomend it to anyone interested in knitting socks!
Now this is my GO TO book and I suggest it to ANYONE wanting to learn to knit socks.
I'm a beginner at knitting socks, so I can't speak to how it would be for experienced sock knitters, but for anyone else out there that wants to knit socks...GET THIS BOOK!
Good pictures, easy to read and understand instructions. Multiple sizes. Good for learning and even better for reference as you work.
