With more than 100,000 copies of 2-at-a-Time Socks in print, sock knitters (and who isn't one these days?) are clamoring for instructions that start from the toe rather than the cuff. Working toe-up, knitters can try on the socks to check sizing as the socks are being knit and can see at a glance how much yarn they have to use. The 2-at-a Time Socks guru Melissa Morgan-Oakes unravesl yet another secret technique with all-new instructions for creating Toe-up 2-at-a-Time Socks -- on just one circular knitting needle. The 15 patterns included will get you going, but this technique will work for all your sock patterns.
Morgan-Oakes's classes on knitting two socks at once are extremely popular at knitting events, and her second book (after 2-at-a-Time Socks) collects her wisdom on knitting two toe-up socks at once. Her step-by-step instructions fully illustrate the process of knitting a sample pair of socks using the two-at-a-time technique; she then provides a collection of easy-to-follow if uninspiring patterns. As a technique book, this can't be beat. Along with the first book in the series, this is an excellent addition. (c) Copyright 2010.
