I have Schurch's book, and a book by Ann Budd,
"Getting Started Knitting Socks", and I prefer the latter:
Ann Budd writes in a way that I understand, Schurch has a lot
of tables and charts you have to take time to understand.
Budd's books get you going knitting socks.
Hey, I know what you mean about getting slightly addicted to knitting socks.
I got so bad last week, that I got something like carpal tunnel syndrome. Been resting my arm all weekend, too.
