When I started this book my thought was, "no way is this going to work." THEN when I came to the heel - which I just mis-typed as Hell - I was really thinking, "This is never going to work." BUT...I kept following the instructions and the very well done photographs and voila - I now have a pair of freaking lime green socks that fit my size 14 feet (for those of you who don't know me - no, I'm not an Amazonian woman but a guy who has taken up knitting as self-defense - I like to think of circular...more
I learned to do 2-at-a-Time Socks with Melissa's first book and learned Toe Up method elsewhere. Even before purchasing this book, I had devised my own process for combining the two methods. I got this book to see if there were steps I hadn't figured out. Only Casting on process was new idea. Nevertheless, even if you already know this technique Melissa gives you the key for figuring out the "secret" math for several different heel types to make the perfect fit. Great pictures on how-to, and jus...more

While I personally have never understand the fascination with sock knitting, in this book, Melissa Morgan-Oakes has come the closest to inspiring within me the motivation to make many pairs of socks. First of all, there are no double pointed needles - just looking at the configurations of those things makes me want to run screaming from the room. Second, the book is jam packed with pictures and the woman is an entertaining writer. I was literally sucked in by her introduction and found myself re...more

I've finished my sample socks, yay!

This is the first time I've knitted socks (or heels*), let alone KNITTED USING DIRECTIONS IN ENGLISH. I found the instructions, photographs and diagrams clear and easy to follow, as well as well thought-out and generally excellent. The sample socks turned out nice enough that if I knew anyone with small enough feet, I'd give them as gifts (even though they aren't a matching pair). Now it's time to try making some adult sized socks…*nervous swallow*

*I really tho...more

Great book for beginning sock knitting!
Finished my sample socks, and it looks like they will fit a small set of feet. I think I will put them in a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child.

When I'm a little more organized and work up the courage perhaps I will try a pair of adult socks.

Good pictures & pretty clear directions. I'm not sure if I can wrap my head around modifying other patterns into this particular technique but I'm still pretty new to socks so hopefully it will make sense eventually.
Amazing looking socks (again!). I may have to buy this one to have since I don't have time to knit at the moment, but when I get a chance to fit it back in, I'd love to do more socks. I tried one from her other book toe-up and it worked nicely, so I'm glad I'll be able to follow the instructions exactly now. And it has the Magic Cast-on I used from the internet too which was very easy to do!

I'm trying to remember what I didn't like about this book! I just know that I didn't want to finish it. It was a library e-book, and I returned it early.
This is my new bible for knitting socks. I've been working on the same pair for about nine months now, off and on.
Great book. I made the sample socks and like the way they turned out. Toe up - two at a time is the way to go!
new technique, and a whole lot of socks for gifts lol, warm feet this holiday season. =)
