A sock is a work of wonder. No other knitted garment has as many structural demands or endures as much wear and tear. The humble sock must defy gravity, suffer the confines of our shoes, and endure being trampled on all day long.   All too often, the root cause of a sock's triumph or failure is the yarn itself. In The Knitter's Book of Socks, Clara Parkes shows you how to knit socks from yarn up, following the sock yarn life cycle from its foundations to its final moments on a proud foot. By understanding a sock's basic needs--elasticity, strength, and moisture management--you'll learn how to play with these tools like building blocks, confidently combining fiber, twist, ply, pattern, and clever stitch tricks to construct your perfect pair of socks.   To help put these principles into practice, The Knitter's Book of Socks also offers 20 fresh, original patterns from today's sock-design luminaries, including Cookie A, Cat Bordhi, Ann Budd, Nancy Bush, Anne Hanson, and Melissa Morgan-Oakes. The socks presented here run the gamut from simple knit-and-purl combinations suitable for beginners to innovative designs with lush colorwork, swirling cables, and delicate lace.   Understanding the elements of yarn is the first step on every successful sock knitting journey. With this book as your guide, you'll learn how to make any sock yarn shine and love every pair of socks you knit.… (lisätietoja)

A boring but informative introduction to yarn and yarn fibers. Has good advanced beginner or intermediate patterns. ( )

This is a fantastic resource for sock knitters. It has so much interesting information about yarn and why some yarns work better for socks and some are not so good. And there is great general information on socks. The patterns are nice too. I may have to buy a copy of this one. ( )

Possibly interesting, though I didn't actually knit a sock from it. Didn't even get around to examining the patterns carefully. Mostly I was reading the first part, about yarn - how it is structurally formed, and how those structures affect the yarn and things knit from it. Why wool is stretchy and cotton isn't, why cotton absorbs moisture and man-made fibers don't, why wool felts and other fibers don't - very interesting, and very useful. I'd like to get it again and read further, and possibly find a nice simple sock pattern that I can start with (most books have so many and complex patterns - the authors are bored with simple socks and want to try something new. I need the simple!). ( )

The first chapters explain different aspects of sock construction, so that you better understand the choices made by sock designers and knitters. The rest of the book is patterns, 20 of them, for socks. They are primarily women's sizes, but a couple are sized for men. ( )
