    Knit Your Socks on Straight A New and Inventive Technique with J

    Knit Your Socks on Straight A New and Inventive Technique with Just Two Needles by Alice Curtis
    Wanted to read this book because 1. I love knitting and 2. I've knit socks but need to improve my skill level and thought this is a different way to knit socks.
    First are the basics and then different techniques and why they might work for some socks and sometimes other methods look better in the long run.
    One thing I found most helpful was the discussion of the different heels and the different toe shapes. I've done a few just following a pattern on 4 needles.
    Like the layout of the patterns and what is needed, gauge and just the cleanness of how it's all laid out in front of you.
    Love the magnified stitch of each of the socks, and their very colorful playful names for the socks.
    Most important to me as I can wear a man's size 10 shoe, love the variety of sizes available.
    Fireside would be my favorite, elegant but simple stitching.
    For the more challenging there are 5 patterns that are charted. The others are all row by row written instructions.
    Great book, one for all levels and you can feel great about being able to make socks if you've dreaded the complications of making them. This book makes them an easy thing to do.
    Comes with abbreviations and diagrammed glossary of how to do some techniques. The spiral bound book also would be great for not losing your place as the book can lie flat.
