Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
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.

I downloaded this book and promptly started to knit the sample pair of socks. I immediately ran into difficulties and as a fairly new knitter, I blamed myself. Frustrated, I decided to browse the hard cover edition in my local B&N to see if I could understand it better. TURNS OUT THAT THE BOOK HAS 170+ PAGES, NOT THE 52 WHICH SHOWED UP ON MY NOOK. To make a long story short, I ended up buying the hard cover edition and I am now finishing my second PAIR of socks. The author's method works beautifully, even for this novice knitter. Because the book is wonderful and the Nook edition not so much, I gave the book an overall rating of 4 stars; (the actual book gets a solid 5 stars). Forget about wasting the $9.99 on the Nook edition, spring for the $17 hard cover and ENJOY!

In the book it says see page 167,but book only goes to 57. And it is not the sample, I purcased the entire book.

I have both of the sock books by Melissa and love her way of presenting the information. I have a doctorate degree, but reading patterns, let's just say, is not my forte. But with her tutelage I can get the pattern done and it looks great. Thanks Melissa, Dr. Tina

Melissa's first book taught me how to knit socks and I was hooked.  Now, the toe-up method is even more efficient, and I am thoroughly enjoying knitting socks.  Sooooo glad my husband bought me this book!

One star because the Nook version is only 57 pages, but references all 100+ pages. I called customer service and got a refund. I'll get the hardcopy.

I enjoy the patterns and the two at a time concept. Patterns are great and the stitch graphs are easy to follow. Don't particularly like/enjoy the cast on method - doesn't come out as smooth as I would want so I have adapted one of my own. Once you get the method down, very easy to transfer to other projects - mittens, warmers, etc. Ms. Melissa is a genius.

Toe up allows for a lot more options and doing two at the same time makes keeping sock size consistent a lot easier. Not to mention when you are done, you're done- not just moving on to the second sock.
