Knitting Socks for Beginners : Easy Steps to Mastering the Yarn and Knitting Socks for All Seasons
by Anna Audley




Overview -
"Can't you just buy a pair of socks at the store? It's cheaper and faster " Taking into account the fact that it truly is cheaper and faster to buy socks, what is it then that makes sock knitting so popular and enjoyable? Perhaps considering the following will help explain this mystery: -Handmade socks have a reputation for being more comfortable, softer, and warmer than many factory-made socks. -Sock knitting is portable. Throw it in a bag, and it can be worked on virtually anywhere -- something not easily accomplished with a large project such as a sweater or afghan. -While many upscale sock knitting materials are available, sock knitting newcomers can begin without spending more than $10 to $20. -Sock patterns are available for just about every taste and personality, from delicate lace patterns to Star Trek or Harry Potter themed patterns. -Handmade socks make thoughtful, unique gifts. But perhaps the biggest reason why sock knitting is so wonderful is that, at its heart, it's easy. Some newbie sock knitters quake at terms like 'Dutch heel' or 'Kitchener stitch'; realistically, the techniques in sock knitting are no more or less difficult than in any other type of knitting. Some take more patience to learn than others, but knitting socks are like riding a bike -- once learned, the skill isn't forgotten (and besides, there's less chance of a head injury ). If you can knit, purl cast on, and bind off, you're ready to dive into the world of sock knitting. This book will show you how to choose material, basic sock knitting techniques and how to fix mistakes. Three sock patterns are included so that you can start testing and enjoying your new skills immediately. Good luck, and have fun
