Sock knitting just got a whole lot faster with the new book, Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks by Melissa Morgan-Oaks. You’ll learn how to use an adaptation of Judy’s Magic Cast On which allows you to cast two sets of stitches (one for each sock) onto one long circular needle. Pretty amazing, huh? The socks are also knit toe-up, so you’ll be able to try on the socks as you work on them allowing you to ensure fit. Also, here’s a great way to use up your yarn stash and know you have enough yarn to complete a full pair! The book contains 15 patterns for men, women, children and babies with detail instructions and charts to help you complete each pair of socks with success. The spiral bound book also has a handy instructional and sizing index in the back too. A must have book for any sock knitter!
