Lepoutre-Baldocchi "nlbknitter" (Oakland, CA USA) This review is from: Knitting Circles around Socks: Knit Two at a Time on Circular Needles (Paperback) Ms. Gillingham does a great job describing how to knit two socks cuff down on two circular needles. Some of the best things are, finally, an illustraton of the anatomy of a sock. Finally, finally, finally, someone shows exactly what the gusset is on a sock. If you've never seen a hand-knit sock, only store-bought, you will be hard pressed to figure out what the gusset is. Here is a picture. Her other illustrations are also very good, particularly of the Kitchener graft.Her instructions are very clearly written. It's obvious that English is her second language in the sense that she is very careful and precise in its use. Nothing is taken for granted. This is an excellent quality in a book of instructions on a process.The reason I give this book only three stars is that I found the title misleading. If Ms. Gillingham (or her publisher) had specified that this was a book on knitting socks on TWO circular needles it would have been clear. As it is, I had the...

I HAD NEVER MADE A PAIR OF SOCKS UNTIL I RECEIVED THIS BOOK! When I first flipped through the pictures and patterns, I thought, "Maybe this is beyond my knitting ability level." However, as I followed the author's meticulous, step-by-step instructions, each subsequent portion of the directions made sense as I continued knitting along. The directions are very detailed, and the pictures are clear and helpful. I am pleased to report that my first pair of knitted socks turned out incredibly well, thanks to this book!The author provides "The Basic Sock Pattern," on pages 20-33, to show exactly how to make a pair of plain, worsted-weight socks on two size 5 circular needles (one 16" circular needle and one 24" circular needle). There are 19 individual photographs (Figures 1-19) in The Basic Sock section that aid the reader in understanding the well-written directions.Since the 16 inch and 24 inch needles are different lengths, you will...

USA) This review is from: Knitting Circles around Socks: Knit Two at a Time on Circular Needles (Paperback) For years I have been envious of knitters who could knit two socks at the same time. It seemed difficult and complicated and was sure this was a skill that I could never master. But then a knitting buddy told me about "Knitting Circles Around Socks." I am now one of those skilled knitters who can do two at once! If you've been knitting for a while and you've made socks on dp needles, then you will be able to follow the written instructions. The easy-to-understand photos complement the writing. The whole idea is that when you're finished knitting, you've got both socks done and they are both exactly the same size. I really like that part. But I have to confess that I didn't particularly enjoy this "twofer" process. In practice, figuring out which needles you're using at any given moment can be exasperating, especially if you're like me and didn't use point protectors. And my yarn kept getting tangled up. Even though the author tried to explain how to hold the yarn so that didn't...
