any one have a great recommendation for a toe-up sock book? i prefer the two circ method...i am also looking for a semi basic book-one with beginner how to as well as a variety of skill level patterns. TIA

A toe up book! I wish! I would buy that for sure. I know Cat Bordhi's book is for 2 circs but have no idea which way she goes...

I know this is a noob question (even though I am not a noob, I just don't really knit socks. Don't kill me sock lovers! :pout: ). Can you knit two socks toe up on two circs? Now that I think about it, you probably couldn't, but just checking.

Of course you can!!!

Check out Silver's ML Toe up tutorial (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/2mlsocks_start.htm). It can be easily modified to use 2 circs.

I learned how to do toe up socks from Sensational Knitted Socks....and now there is More Sensational Knitted Socks. I find the first one indespensable, but I haven't used the second one yet, so I can't offer an opinion on it. Looks pretty useful though.
