Book: Toe-up 2-at-a-time socks by Melissa Morgan-Oakes

Delightful book! Excellent pictures, ring bound (I like being able to open the book and lay it flat, saves the spine makes the book last longer), great step-by-step instructions, 15 patterns included for all family members from baby to men’s. Instruction are given for a traditional gusset heel, short rows, and heel cup and flap.

I found the toe to gusset formula a little confusing at first, required some work with a calculator.

Erratas found here pgs 105, 144

Recommendation: Excellent Book, I would buy it just for the patterns. I might not knit all my socks 2-at-a-time, but I like her approach!
