Your Favorite (Knitting) Book

25 Favorite Socks

Seriously, I LOVE this book. I have made so many socks from this book and there seems to be no end in sight. So far, I have made:

Embossed Leaves I, Cabled Rib, Uptown Boots, Mock Wave Cables, Embossed Leaves II, Elegant Ribbed Stockings, Waving Lace Socks, Diagonal Cross-Rib

Some, if not most, of these socks are made for other people so I find this as an excellent excuse to make and additional pair for me too :-) . I also have an eye on patterns I haven’t tried yet:

This is my favorite book because it has a diverse set of socks–ones for men in my life, ones for a challenge, some patterns that can be best classified as “Oldies But Goodies,” oh the list goes on.


What’s your favorite knitting pattern book and why?

    I really like this book too! Sadly, my copy got lost somewhere, so I’ve not knit any of the socks in it.

    I don’t know if I have a favorite knitting pattern book. I think the one I’ve knit the most from and intend to knit more of that I still have is Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush. I think Wendy’s sock books are up there because I’ve knit some of them and want to knit a lot more. Sock books are definitely the ones I find myself going back to the most and knitting the most from!
