Discover a new approach to sock knitting with Wendy D. Johnson and Socks from the Toe Up. This approach, made famous by her popular blog WendyKnits.net, will turn even the most reluctant knitter into a toe-up nut. Knitting a sock from the toe up saves yarn and always gives a perfect fit. And? No grafting! Wendy provides all the how-tos, tips, and techniques you need, as well as the pros and cons behind all of the cast-on, toe, heel, and bind-off options, gleaned from her years of experience.

With more than 20 fun and beautiful patterns, Socks from the Toe Up has a sock for every foot. Whether you like bold textures or hearts and flowers, delicate lace or Bavarian cables, you (and your feet) will be covered here. Even if you’re casting on your first sock, or have been a top-down sock knitter for ages, you’ll find patterns and projects here that’ll keep your needles humming. Socks from the Toe Up is the hands-down best guide for toe-up socks. ( )

Being a new sock knitter I found everything in this book helpful and easy to understand. The patterns are nice without being blah basic. I have looked at many sock books but this is the only one that I bought for my sock collection. ( )

This book is a fantastic sock-knitting resource! First, the layout is dead gorgeous - as are the photos. Second, it starts off simply to warm up any beginning toe-up knitters, introducing plain socks and socks with simple (but stunning) patterns. Also a lot of the socks look great in either solid or variegated yarn, certainly a difficult feat! There's lace patterns, textured patterns, cabled patterns - a fabulous array of patterns for any style and construction preference! I really love this book. ( )
