Kick Second-Sock Syndrome for Good? Melissa Morgan-Oakes frees you forever from the repetitive boredom of knitting sock number two. With her innovative new method, you can cast on and knit two socks at once on a single circular needle. Adapt your favorite sock pattern to this innovative new method or have fun with any of the 17 original designs included. Either way, you'll be thrilled with the fun and satisfaction of finishing TWO socks at the very same time!
Socks have traditionally been hand-knitted one at a time and with multiple needles, a method that can be frustrating and may even lead to "second-sock syndrome," a disinclination to knit a second sock once the novelty of completing the first one wears off. In recent years, however, several popular two-at-a-time techniques have emerged, and knitwear designer Morgan-Oakes here teaches one of them (requiring a 40" circular needle). Supplementing the teaching section are 17 patterns for socks in different yarn weights for men, women, and children. Readers going step by step through her sample socks for children should be able to adapt other sock patterns using this technique. Experienced sock knitters will lament the lack of designs for short-row heels and toe-up knitting, but most public libraries where there is interest in sock knitting will want to purchase.
