Review

Finalist in the About.com Reader's Choice Awards for Best Knitting Book of 2011. "Budd's latest book is a trove of expertise, with patterns from 15 of the craftiest sockistas around, no surnames necessary...Every project adheres to the holy trinity of custom sock knitting--fit, comfort, aesthetics. And if you can't get enough of this collected wisdom in words alone, a 95-minute sock tutorial by Budd is included on an accompanying DVD." - "Cheryl Krementz, Yarn Market News" "Ann Budd is at it again. She's pulled together another great collection of patterns, this time from master sock designers. There are 17 sock designs, and there isn't one I wouldn't love to wear." - "Cindy Koepke, Knitcircus" "It seems like just about all the big names in knitting -- particularly sock knitting -- are featured in Ann Budd's excellent new book "Sock Knitting Master Class."..In addition to the fantastic patterns, which offer a wide variety of options for both toe-up and top-down knitters (and even one sock that goes both directions!), an introductory section covers just about all you'd ever need to know about some of the design choices that go into making a sock." - "About.com Guide to Knitting" "If the designers aren't enough to draw you in, there's much more in here for sock novices and sock aficionado alike. With topics like sock design, toe up and top down construction, and the best bind offs for toe-up socks, this book will take you from zero to sock in no time." - "KnitPurl yarn shop (Portland, OR)" "This book is a really valuable collection of patterns and techniques that any sock knitter will use again and again." - "Jenny, KnitPicks.com" "I'm really glad to have this book because it has so many patterns, from lace to cable to colorwork, and the socks are all beautiful. Also, the techniques have plenty of charts, diagrams and photographs to make learning easy." - "Pamela MacKenzie, MyCentralJersey.com" "The facts alone will mak An excellent and comprehensive book on knitting socks. It's exhaustive. The answers to any questions you may have had about knitting and designing socks is in here. Ann has written an excellent introduction and challenging intermediate book for those looking to expand on their skills. There's a free DVD included with Ann Budd professionally demonstrating the different techniques of sock knitting and design. She explains the different knitting needles you can use and the differences between toe up and toe down construction. Also the 'frightening' kitchener stitch is demonstrated by Ann really slowly and clearly. She's an excellent teacher. She's funny, easy to understand and you feel confident when listening to her advice. There are both toe down and toe up socks in here. There are 10 top down designs to follow and seven toe up socks in the book. The first 47 pages are devoted to explaining yarn and gauge, heels and toes. There are sock patterns in here from Cookie A, Nancy Bush, Cat Bordhi, Ann Budd herself and Melissa Morgan-Oakes amongst others. The standard of the book is extremely high and it's all been excellently produced, including the DVD. The photography and colours of the sock designs are beautiful. You feel really inspired as you flick through. This book explores such techniques as cables, twisted stitches, lace, stranded colorwork, entrelac, shadow knitting, and intarsia worked in the round. It's such a lovely guide to intermediate sock knitting.-sewingisforgirls.blogspot.com

Format: Paperback
If only ... this book had an index! I spend ages trawling back and forth through the chapters looking for a particular technique. Once I get there, it's explained really well, with clear diagrams.
If only ... the DVD had been made by a knitter! What a great opportunity lost. All too often the "over the shoulder" shot (excellent)was replaced by a "face on" view. That's no use if you want to see what's happening from the knitter's point of view. I was so distracted by the lighting reflected in Ann's spectacles that I missed some of the relevant information! I know, that's a piddling criticism, but valid to me.
All that aside, the book is well written, has excellent diagrams and instructions and I immediately got out the needles to make the intriguing Half Stranded Socks.

Format: Paperback
Having already purchased Ann Budd's book for sock knitting for beginners, I eagerly awaited the arrival of this book. It did not disappoint and I highly recommend it for anybody who is ready to move on from basic socks to something more adventurous. It includes the basics, of course, as a reminder, but also includes information on top down and toe-up knitting, various advanced techniques, different heels, and a nice selection of projects to try out new-found skills. It's a lovely book even if you just want to pick it up and browse, but Ann Budd is so inspiring. I haven't looked at the accompanying DVD but I'm sure it'll be as clear as any YouTube video you can come across.

But I am so sad I can't watch the DVD as it is an American book the DVD wont play in my DVD or my computer. Obviously you need a all region DVD player to play it :(

The book though is delicious & I look forward to knitting the socks once I have mastered her beginners book "Getting Started Knitting Socks"

UPDATE
Found I can watch on my new computer :) :) :)

Lovely book but completely spoilt for me as of the 17 designs only 5 have any size variable options for foot circumference. As I sadly have fat hobbit feet and the book offers no suggestions for working out how to increase a pattern that means I am stuck. Very disappointed as there are some lovely socks in this book but I expect when I pay for a pattern to be getting the clever brain work from the designer that enables various sizes to be made from the same pattern. Still at least I now know what to check.for before I buy again.

This book is excellent. It covers all forms of socks toe up and top down. It covers several ways to cast on and off and shows all of the different toe and heel configurations. Using this book you should have no problems following patterns or creating your own. I even found new information in this book so I think experienced knitters would enjoy it as well. There are loads of patterns and good advice on getting the best look from your knitting.

This is one of those books that make your mouth water. It ticks all the boxes, the book looks good, has excellent production, layout, photos and clear instructions with charts as well as the bonus of a DVD. Most of all it has great designs that will make your toes tingle with delight. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

I'm new to sock making and have found this book a delight to use. The dvd enclosed is also helpful. There's a variety of patterns and techniques plus lots of tips. Even if you end up not making any the patterns in the book, which would be surprising, there is enough knitting technique information to make it a worthwhile purchase.
