Some customer comments about this book:
I just started knitting socks in October and I am HOOKED!! They are so much fun - I ordered the book "Successful Sock Knitting for Beginners" by Carol W. LaForet. It was FANTASTIC. It walks you through step by step and my first pair of socks turned out perfect!! She uses DPN and that is what I started with but have now (on my fourth pair of socks) have switched to the Magic Loop method. I learned that on the internet but still use my book as my basis for all my socks. I strongly recommend it and it is the BEST reference tool.
I bought your Sock Knitting booklet and I would like to thank you very, very much. I had previously bought several books before this one and never quite "got it." But yours is so easy to follow, and makes all the steps so clear, it was just great.
Your instructions are so easy to follow..and I've found something I think I'm going to love to do..I had always been so afraid to even try to knit a sock, just knowing I couldn't do it, now have proved myself wrong. Thanks again for this wonderful book, I certainly will recommend it to my friends who might want to try the sock knitting quest!!
The one and only book that finally got me knitting socks! Can't believe it!!!!!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I just finished my first pair of socks and I am thrilled. I've started and quit many socks in the past and had given up until I got your book. Anyone struggling with socks should give it a try.
Exactly what I needed to learn sock knitting, nothing else comes close. Thanks!
