Socks Socks Socks
"Socks Socks Socks" is sure to satisfy sock knitters of all skill levels from beginning to advanced knitters. There are even some projects labeled as "Adventurous Level." The levels are relative to your experience with knitting socks. While there is a review of sock knitting in the beginning of the book and an appendix of various techniques, the book does assume that you know how to knit a pair of socks.
The socks are all designed to be knit on double-pointed needles, but I'm sure many could be knit up on circular needles. One project, Two Socks Two Ways, has instructions for knitting the socks either by hand or by machine.
The book is divided into sections based on the types of socks: Simple Socks, Kids Socks, Lace Socks, Color Socks, Texture Socks, Whimsical Socks, and Icelandic Socks. I made the pair of stockings pictured above based on the "My Christmas Stocking" pattern on page 12. I enjoyed making them and gave them to my sister and her husband for Christmas. They loved them!
