Have you been admiring your sock? Well you should be!!
It's very easy to get bitten by the sock-knitting bug. Soon you will find yourself wondering how you could have lived without hand-knit lace socks or wildly-funky colored socks. Once you get started using self-striping yarn there may be no turning back. Why would you let that special man in your life wear socks without mock cables or yes, even argyle socks?
If you are hooked, here's another book to check out of the library. This is another one you will want to have in your own collection. It begins with a history of hand-knit socks and then goes into construction detail for both toe-up and top-down socks. There is a
great chart that provides all the numbers you need to
knit socks from a baby to an adult XL . . . and in
3 different weights of yarn no less!
When you are ready to start designing your
socks there are guidelines and suggested stitches to
use. Patterns are also included if you would rather follow directions than write them!
