Product Description

Product Description

Sock knitters everywhere know the frustration of Second Sock Syndrome. It goes something like this: A cute new sock pattern and soft, foot-warming yarn lead to many happy knitting hours, resulting in . . . ONE sock. The first sock is done (and it's adorable!) but pattern distraction sets in. Who wants to knit the same project all over again? There are so many new projects waiting to be discovered.

Melissa Morgan-Oakes ends the drudgery of the second sock by showing knitters how to cast on and knit two socks at one time on one long circular needle! Her method is captured in step-by-step photographs, clearly showing knitters how to turn out two socks at the same time. Goodbye to lonely, abandoned single socks. Hello to unlimited pretty pairs, knit on one needle (often finished on the same day), and worn with pride and that gratifying sense of accomplishment.

Oakes is a dedicated knitter, knitwear designer, and knitting instructor who has known the frustration of Second Sock Syndrome. Her easy-to-learn technique enables sock stitchers to adapt any pattern to her two-at-a-time method. But before experimenting with other patterns, readers will want to try Morgan-Oakes's 15 original designs. Fun and creative, they include simple to complex choices, a variety of yarn weights, and designs for women, men, and children.

Socks are small, relatively inexpensive, and interesting to knit — a favorite portable choice of busy knitters. Keep the fun in sock-stitching with the innovative new technique that produces two socks — yes, that's one sock for each foot — at the very same time!

Consumer testimonial —

"I am a new knitter and purchased 2-at-a-time Socks. Perfect! This is a book is the best investment I've ever made! I have a lovely pair of socks ... for the first time! Very comprehensive instructions, as well as a very easy-to-understand glossary in the back. I recommend this book to anyone interested in knitting socks. So much easier than the double pointed needles! — Deborah, Colorado Springs, CO

3.0 out of 5 stars Compare with the other knit 2 at same time... 21 Feb 2008
Format:Spiral-bound
Waitint for almost 4 weeks finally got this book. But this book is not that good as I thought compare with last month the other book I bought from Amazon. I think Antje Gillingham's "Knitting circles around sock -knit 2 at a time on circular needles" her book are more much better then this new book. So if you are looking a book for knitting 2 socks at same time. I'll recommend you buy~ Antje Gillingham's "Knitting circles around sock -knit 2 at a time on circular needles" describe clear, step by step step, easy to read and also the cover is paperback easy to carrying aroung and read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Riddled with errors 18 May 2010
Format:Spiral-bound
I bought this for the technique and not the patterns, but I am distinctly unimpressed. It is certainly not suitable for sock knitting beginners: there are far too many mistakes and the instructions don't give enough detail. I am an intermediate knitter and just about managing to follow the basic instructions, but the number of errors and omissions is quite alarming.

Having coloured the two socks differently in the photos, why not call them by colour in the instructions, rather than A and B? In several places the instructions or photos refer to the wrong sock, and even where they don't I've had to resort to labelling each sock in the photos to make sense of it all. The photos could have been a lot bigger and more numerous. The sock anatomy photo would have been more useful if it came accompanied by some sort of diagram showing how the construction is achieved. In general some diagrams as well as photos might have helped.

The method seems to involve more shuffling of the needle than actual knitting, and I'm not yet convinced I'll want to use it once I've finished the sample socks. All things considered, a waste of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars wrong instrustions! 26 Feb 2010
Format:Spiral-bound
This book has a great technique but there are very basis errata on the initial instructions, glaringly obvious to an experienced knitter, but wouldn't be to a novice. I checked the publishers website for the errata and there are loads, if you buy this book, go to their page and change the mistakes or you will be very confused! Otherwise it is a brilliant book with wonderful patterns and well worth the hassle.

2.0 out of 5 stars mistakes mistakes mistakes 26 Dec 2011
By grumpya
Format:Spiral-bound
there are loads of mistakes in this book, her other book for toe up socks is better, but I don't like the basic shape of her socks, I don't want to have to proof read a book before I use it, & the method is slow because you spend too much time moving stitches around on the needles. The fact is if you find knitting socks tedious then don't knit them, if you enjoy it then you don't need this book. There are no shortcuts when knitting socks! The only advantage to this method is you do finish up with 2 socks that are exactly the same size as you will knit the same number of rows on each one in each section while when you knit 2 socks one after the other it can turn out that you mis calculate & have an extra row or 2 in one of them, not really crucial for most people but if this drives you mad you may wish to try knitting your socks 2 at a time, but don't buy this book. It is an insult to sell a book with so many typo's & to take your money from you expecting you to go to the website to correct the book or to sit there working it out for yourself
