When I picked up this book, I thought – OMG! I’d never knit socks on circular needles. Why do I have this book? First opinions are sometimes not accurate. Read on….
Antje Gillingham turned out to be a very detailed author with in-depth explanations. This 80-page volume was published by Martingale in 2007.
I’m not usually a fan of photos used to illustrate steps, but these were really good.
You really understand how the two-at-a-time socks are worked once you get past the casting on.
I like the way that Antje begins with basic socks and then incorporates more complex socks as the book progresses.
The pattern instructions are clear and easy-to-follow.
Another pair of socks to master once you have done the basic pattern.
The book has a column flap with an interesting bio of the author.
So what’s the verdict? I think the book is well done, but doesn’t need to be on my book shelf. If you want to give working two socks at the same time, I say – give it a whirl! Not me!
