Great if your an advanced beginner or intermediate sock knitter.
vania
I've always preferred working my socks toe-up, and I love that there are different patterns for the toes AND the heels, as well as the body of the sock.
Frosty
I really love this series of books, if only for the pattern ideas it provides.

After purchasing this book, I took it upon myself to look up any errata on this book. Sure enough, I found one. Little did I know that there would be more of these. I started working on the origami heel and found the instructions confusing. I had to rip several times and then later found out that there was an errata on the origami heel instructions for the first Socks a La Carte book (Part I). I don't understand why the editors did not correct the second version when they posted the errata on the first version.

Do not buy this book especially if you're a beginner. I am an experienced sock knitter and I think this book is full of mistakes.

This may be a wonderful resource for sock knitting in it's spiral bound form but it is a very poorly designed Kindle book. There is no table of contents and no way of navigating back and forth among the pages. When you click on a selection for a cuff, toe or body pattern the book navigates to the instructions but there is no way of getting back to where you started from other than clicking through every page or adding a bookmark.

It looks like a great book to have but not in Kindle form.

This book is set up wonderfully and I love the leg and cuff patterns, but beware and read ahead before purchasing. The patterns are written for double pointed needles only and it's very difficult to translate them to two circulars. Toe and heel instructions are written as "at the end of needle one" etc, rather than by stitch count. Issue two: the patterns are written only for a woman's size 8 shoe, and there is very little info on re-sizing. I wish I had known that before purchasing.

This is a fantastic sock knitting book for the beginner to the advanced knitter. The elastic band change is perfect as it holds the pages where you want them. The variety of pattern types is also wonderful. I especially liked the addition of toe up as I'm a toe-up, 2 at a time on 1 long circ type of knitter. The sock patterns are endless.

They give you Judys magic cast on for a long circular needle and then all the patterns are for 3double pointed needles- VERY hard to adapt them. why not just tell you to use double pointed needles and skip the "bait and switch"

Format: Hardcover-spiral
I prefer socks knit from the toe up, so this book was a great addition to my knitting book collection. I love that these aren't set formulas with a specific heel, toe and pattern, and you can mix and match instead. I have already knit my first pair from this book (Turkish cast on, standard toe, Eyes On You pattern, Perle De Cotes cuff, stretchy bind off) and love them. I am actually starting my second pair now. Although I didn't see it anywhere before buying, all socks are knit with an 8 st/in gauge. Unfortunately, this does leave little choice on size. I happen to be a loose knitter, so I use a slightly larger gauge to fit my larger feet, but there are no options given if you happen to have wider feet or bigger ankles, or smaller feet or ankles, for that matter.

My favorite part of this book are the options given. There are several cast-ons that are described in details in the book, numerous heels and toes and even a good stretchy bind-off detailed on page 70. The patterns for the socks are limited, but they give a good jumping off point.

i like this book for the most part. there are a few errors here and there, and some of the page counts in the "flip book" section are off.

i really like the wide selection of toes and heels, and many of the patterns are fun. however, i wish the book gave instructions for different sizes of socks (e.g., 58, 64, 72, etc.) so that readers could see how the construction works on different counts AND so that people with larger or smaller legs and feet could knit the socks easily, without having to spend a lot of time figuring out how to size up or size down. but, this is a problem i have with a lot of sock books, not just this one.

This books tells you what to do in pattern but minimal instructions on HOW TO do it. I found an unusal and probable non-standard abbreviation int the origami heel and I had to redo numerous times & consult a master knitter to get it figured out. I am a very experienced knitter and have never required so much assistance. I believe a novice would have bailed. I do not recommend this book for obvious reasons. There are fun patterns in it, just beware of the shortfalls
