The review copies of books have been piling up around here, so you will likely be seeing book review here on a weekly basis for awhile. The upside to this? Many of them will be giveaways, so you will want to stay tuned.
The first one to review is Terrific Toe Up Socks by Janet Rehfeldt.
What I like about this book is that half the book discusses the techniques needed to successfully knit toe-up socks. There are a variety of cast ons, increases, and decreases illustrated as well short row heels including wrap and turns (which admittedly are my nemesis).
If you are an experienced toe-up sock knitter, you may find this book too be a little too much technique and instruction. But for someone like me who has knit toe-up socks before but struggled through some of the techniques, this book is great. I wish I had it when I was first trying to go toe-up!
The book also includes about 8 patterns. That's quite a lot of info in this book!
The book is published by Martingale & Company and retails for only $14.99. On Amazon, it's currently only $9.99.
