The second-sock syndrome is over, thanks to Melissa Morgan-Oakes. The author of 2-at-a-Time Socks shows knitters how, with one circular needle, two socks can be completed at once. Hurray!”

The format of the book is perfect for a knitter as the internal spine allows the book to lie flat for easy following of the pattern. The photos are clear and with the technical shots and well written text the technique is easy to master.
As always Melissa's patterns are distinctive, perfectly written and easy to follow. This book should be in every knitters reference library.
Not only do I not enjoy cuff-down construction, I also don't care for the look of the kitchener toe. To me, the socks in the pictures looked more like house shoes than socks. That's the nature of the beast with cuff-down socks, and my opinion is simply my opinion in that arena.
The book is well done as far as its construction (spiral bound), picture quality, and level of detail. There's also a helpful area in the back where she lists the average lengths of most shoe sizes. I did enjoy that part.
Be forewarned that only a short section of this book is dedicated to the technique-- the rest is filled with patterns. Also, there is only one recipe for socks. No instructions for short row heels or toes. It's simply flap and gusset. If that is your preference, then this book may be for you.
I'm currently -successfully-- following a free online tutorial called Silver's Sock Class that has detailed instructions with photos for making toe-up socks, two-at-a-time, on magic loop. This duck has found her water. May you find yours.
