Just bought a new sock knitting book !
Hey everyone, I am excited to tell you all that I just purchased "from the Internet" a new book on knitting socks. I met a lady at a local knit-in and she swears by it and her socks are REALLY nicely shaped. The others call her "the sock lady". So I assume she's been around the sock block once or twice.

I thought -- I want to do that too.....and since I have the Knit Picks yarn also on the way, I'll need a pattern or two....

Check this out Queen Kahuna Creations Crazy Toes & Heels . I think I can make these. They are so attractively shaped.

Does anyone know about this already? If so, how do you like it?

Now -- on to stalking the postman and the UPS driver !

Wow - this book looks incredibly detailed! I've never heard of it, but I'd love to know what you think of it when you start using it. I love the pictures I can see on the site.

I just put it on my list of books to 'check out'.

I'm in the process of doing my fifth sock and my first on circular needles and I have to say it's MUCH easier and MUCH faster. Do let us know how you like the book. I'm actually interested in it, too.

OK kitting buddies, I should have it by Thursday---actually hoping for Wednesday....and I am going to jump right in.

I'll let you know how it goes, I am glad to hear that doing it with two circs is much easier and much faster.

My goal is to start off with two socks at once on circs, we'll see if I can pull it off.

I'll let you know either way! I'll either be jumping with joy or screaming in frustration! Gotta start somewhere!

I also would really like to know what you think of the book after you've tried it out. I like the look of the socks on the website. The pair that I'm almost done with is not all that attractive until you get it on your foot and then it's just fine. I guess that's all that matters. It's super comfy. I wonder if the toe-up ones are as comfortable. They probably are, I just don't know anyone who has made both & can compare.
