I was a beginner sock knitter, struggling to do top down socks with the cast ons and kitchener stitch, when I found Wendy's Socks from the Toe Up book. I've never looked back. It has all the information you will ever need to knit a beautiful pair of socks, easily,in almost every size starting with a small woman's to a man's. Her patterns are beautiful and you can choose your own level of expertise. I love this book! It's the best sock book .
