Great Instructions to Learn 2-at-a-Time Socks

I suffer from second sock syndrome and had looked at this book a few times at the store. When my son kept stealing my favorite hand knit socks I decided it was time to pick up this book so I could get him an entire pair of socks knitted so I could receive mine back! The instructions are good. There were times I did have reread them out loud a few more times to make sure I was understanding the concept. The pictures are great. I would recommend doing the practice pair of socks in two different color yarns as recommended. I did this and now have 2 pair of toddler size socks for a gift and learned the concept as well. I actually used the 2-at-a-time on another project to knit a couple of animal legs and arms and got a head start of that knitting project. It is definitely useful for more than just socks. There are a lot of great sock patterns in the book for once you have mastered 2-at-a-time. I have several tabbed for my next couple projects. Another great feature is that the book is spiral bound so it lays flat next to you while you are reading and knitting. No need to take you hands off of your knitting to hold a page down! I did find a couple comments on the internet about errata in the book but I checked out the author's internet page and found that my book must have been a newer print since almost all of the errors were corrected. Overall ... A great book to have in a knitters library if you are a regular sock knitter or not. I am glad I bought it and I have a feeling a few of my friends will be borrowing it ... but they will go get their own copy afterwards, I am sure! :)

Although the technique is neat (albeit difficult at first) I was very disappointed that the patterns for everything pictured are not provided. I even contacted the publisher for the pattern for the socks on the cover and received incorrect information. I cannot recommend this book. It is not worth the frustration.

    I'm a convert!

    I wanted to try this technique and now I'm a complete convert. It is great to have both socks finished at the same time and it is much more pleasant to work circulars.<BR/>The book shows, at the start, how to master the technique. This was very helpful. Photos were clear and there was enough detail. Key to success? Remembering which is Sock A and Sock B when you start a project (this is made easier in the instructions b/c she uses two difference color yarns).<BR/>I knit one of her patterns first and now have no trouble converting other patterns to the same technique.<BR/>I highly recommend this.

    I Also Recommend:

    You know how excited you get when you have one sock done, but then realize you have to make another.

    This book is the answer to that dilemma. Why not make both socks at the same time? The technique should work for mittens as well. Whatever you do, don't try to comprehend why it works before trying the technique. Just knit it!
