This book shows my current favorite method of knitting socks.
It's brilliant: No dreaded second sock lethargy! No unplanned yarn shortages! You can fit as you knit!
The instructions are very clear, even when my aging brain and arthritic fingers need to go over and over the details of how to "make one left by raising the bar" or "Picking up wraps". I did supplement the instructions with bits from YouTube on how to do the "Surprisingly stretchy cast off" and from a different two at a time sock book for subdividing the yarn skein properly before you start that "Magic Eight cast ON", which is probably the trickiest part of the whole process. Still, this is the one sock book I'll hang on to instead of passing along. ( )

Love the ability to do Toe Up -so as not to waste yarn or worry about running out of yarn too soon. Also great to avoid the dreaded "Second Sock Syndrome" wherein I get bored before finishing (or even starting) the second sock.
I don't remember where I learned how to subdivide one skein of yarn correctly so as to make the two at a time work well.
This method is far superior to other sock making approaches, at least for me. ( )

This book was a revelation to me! I'd only knitted socks using the pattern inside the ball-band before, as a compact passe-temps while backpacking up the Australian East coast by Greyhound. But these designs made my earlier efforts look like poor relatives. Added to the fact that I prefer to knit everything on circular needles, this no-waste method means that you don't lose interest halfway through a pair of socks!

I've adapted the patterns for double-thickness toes, but have yet to work out how to reinforce the heels. I'd have liked to see a bit more advice on casting off loosely enough, but otherwise... it's great! ( )

I am so happy that more authors are coming out with toe-up sock books. Unfortunately, this author only shows one method of doing magic loop socks (make one toe increases, gusset heel, sewn bind-off). That is my only complaint about the book. The pictures are fabulous, showing each step for using the magic loop technique. (This is the only book I know of that shows magic loop toe-up.)

There is a wide variety of patterns--both for solid & variegated yarns. This book has the largest amount of patterns for variegated, hand-painted & self-striping yarn that I have seen. The spiral binding inside the hardcover helps the book to lay flat & open to whatever page you are on while you are knitting. That way you can look at the technique instructions & pictures as you knit.

Overall, I was impressed with this book & happy that I bought it, but I still like Toe-Up! By Chrissy Gardiner & Toe-Up Socks for Everybody By Wendy D. Johnson better. I hope to see more patterns & books for toe-up socks as they are becoming a lot more popular. ( )

For Gene,
The other day I was breathing,
you know, in and out, in and out?
And suddenly I realized that
what I was breathing was you.
Thank you.

As soon as the last word was written for 2-at-a-Time Socks, the idea of a toe-up sock book began to grow in my mind.
