Q about Sensational Knitted Socks
I've been planning on buying this book FOREVER, but just don't have the cash flow when it's convenient. But, can someone tell me if the book includes instructions for toe-up socks also? I'm planning on making a pair of sock's for my mom, and thought I might give toe-up a shot. It may be a good excuse to buy the book!

Yes it does. I have wanted to try this but I want to go back to a pair of booties I had knit that had you do a double knit thing instead of provincial cast on. Must look that up as I think the toe up can be done this way.

I don't have the book handy (I'm at work :crying, but I'm sure there are toe-up socks in there with short-row heels.

Use whatever excuse you need to buy this book - it is by far the best sock book I've seen (and I have a bunch of 'em). The patterns are written in such a way that you'll really understand how they're structured, and it's a useful tool if you want to start designing your own patterns.

I resisted buying this book at first. I am a cheapskate and can't stand buying patterns/books if I can get it online for free

BUT... this is hands down the best sock book/pattern I have ever seen. It gives you so many options, 4/5 dpns, 2 circs, toe up, top down, patterns, heels, and she explains everything to a "t". If I had never done a sock before, I probably could have done one with the help of this book alone. (I wasn't a member here, bcs then of course I would have done Silver's Sock Tutorial! ) You should buy it when you have the $!
