Seems to do an excellent job describing loom knitting socks. At the very least, as someone who hasn't done this before the book shows the initial difficulty/time necessary for beginners and has dissuaded me from attempting this now.

Over the past decade or two, there has been a tremendous revival of interest in hand knitting. Not only are there many more active knitters (and not all of them women, either) than there were in, say, 1980, but the nooks and crannies of knitting history and technology are being explored as never before.

"Loom" knitting (not to be confused with weaving, which is entirely different) is a technique for producing knitted garments without the use of knitting needles. The loom is actually a hoop or woo

The book has a comprehensive introduction section that goes into detail about stitches, yarns, and the anatomy of socks. There is a nice variety of projects, several of which I found appealing, but I'm afraid I couldn't try any of them, because I don't have a loom with the appropriate number of pegs in the appropriate gauge.

I recommend this book if you already have an EFG Wonder Sock Loom, or a nice variety of 60-70-peg EFG looms, but anyone else, be warned that you will have go loom-shopping be

Good photos and graphic instructions. Patterns for all levels. If you want to invest in all new equiptment for a fiber craft loom knitting may be for you. I considered this because regular knitting is so difficult with my arthritis. But the looms and hooks look to be just about as difficult, so I'll stick to crochet. I wish there were more crochet sock patterns. I may have to work on that! :)

I love this book. I got a sock loom for Christmas so I won this at the perfect time. I have not done any of the patterns yet, but there were tons that I want to try as soon as I get some wool.
the directions are easy to follow, which is good for me. If you love to knit socks on a loom, I highly recommend this book.

I was looking for a beginner’s guide to knitting socks and this book does not disappoint. The variety of sock patterns is extraordinary. The patterns are clear and look easy to follow. The pictures of the completed socks throughout the book are beautiful too.

This is a fun way to learn to knit socks. I am not yet the greatest at it, but me and my kids have enjoyed learning to use the sock loom. Who knew there were so many different types of socks!!

Fun...Fun...FUN!! And very easy!
