    I love knitting socks because wearing them feels incredible! Also, no matter how many pairs I knit, turning a heel is still pure magic.

    I really enjoy sock-knitting, but what I really LOVE is the product…there is nothing like wearing hand-knit socks!

    I am sock obsessed and rarely knit anything else. I just think they’re the perfect project – portable, magic to make and everyone wears them.

    I love knitting in the round, so socks are a great project. Socks are also a portable knitting project (I knit in the car….not while driving!), plus a nice way to use up bits and bobs of yarn.

    I took a class to make socks last year and I love knitting socks. Sock knitting is so portable. There is something special about wearing hand knit socks.

    I love knitting socks. I love using the Berroco Vintage yarn, it knits up quick and is so soft. I brings socks when I go to appointments because it’s a great portable project.

    Love making socks!! One skein is enough to make a pair for myself and a pair for my baby girl. Matching mommy/daughter socks gives us both happy feet!!!

    I love knitting socks! They are a small project on small needles that fit in my not-so-small lap! I love the irregular color changes. And to top it off, my feet are warm in the winter when I wear my hand-knit socks with my Birks! I would love this book…..thanks

    I really enjoy making socks for me, but I’m slow-going. As an avid crocheted for many years, that is the reason I wanted to learn to knit!

    I have one plain pair of socks under my belt, it is time to try something a little more challenging.

    Wearing handknit socks, especially 100% wool, makes me feel pampered. They are fun to knit for many reasons – and are portable and come off the needles completely finished.

    Would love to have this book since I’m hooked on knitting socks.

    Love knitting socks. They just seem to be so quick. maybe because half way through a project you’ve already won a little victory with a finished sock.

    I use sock patterns for socks AND fingerless gloves, so I’m always needing more.

    April 11, 2014
  37. I’m a sock nut!! I love to wear hand-knit socks as much as I love to knit them!! Socks are less of a commitment than a sweater, give you more bang for your yarn buck, and you get to try out new stitches and designs on a smaller landscape. AND, did I mention all the luscious fingering weight yarns on the market AND all the to-dye-for (pardon the pun!) colors?? What’s not to love about knitting socks??!!

    What a fun looking book.

    The first time I saw all those tiny needles I was sure I would never be able to knit socks. What a feeling of accomplishment when I finally tried it and could actually make socks! I have been totally addicted ever since. I can try out new things on a small project for quick gratification.

    love to knit socks because they are a portable project and are relatively quick to knit

  41. when I travel I buy sock yarn (as local to area as possible) so that I can make “souvenir socks” of my trip.

    I have yet to try a sock – but I know a special someone in my life who would love, love, love socks with beads!

    I love sock knitting because it’s perfect for trying out new techniques on a small scale, whether it be lace, cables, fair isle patterns, etc.

    I love knitting socks because they are quick little projects and I can experiment with lots of different stitches. Plus, I LOVE wearing hand-knit socks.

    April 11, 2014
  47. I have a whole drawer of hand knit socks. They are my favorite thing to knit because the yarn can do all the work or you can work techniques that you find intimidating, and if you mess up, no one will really care cuz it’s on your feet!

    This book looks great. I just finished my first sock class and have one sock done. This would get me motivated to finish the second one. Good luck everyone.

    I do enjoy sock knitting. They are easy to transport and relatively quick to knit. There’s also a pretty good chance of fitting correctly, although I have knit a few that were too small and too big.

    Socks are my go-to project for commuter knitting. As a mass transit rider from way back, there really is truth in the button “I knit so I do not kill people” and socks are the perfect antidote to the interesting people who ride the bus some days – and I end up with something really fun after a month of commuting!

    April 11, 2014

    I’ve been wanting to learn to knit socks! They are beautiful & being able to tweak a pattern to fit my slightly bigger feet is a great idea & stress reliever.

    I’ve just learned how to knit socks and it just could be my new addiction. I’m not sure if it’s the feel of the yarn or that they are comfy, but I really do love it!

    April 11, 2014
  55. My friend got me hooked on sock knitting and I love it! I can’t stop looking for patterns and yarn. Never a dull day when there’s a heel turn coming up :D

    I’m still fairly new to sock making. I used the magic loop with 2 at a time and dpns for my first pair. I haven’t decided which I like the most but I plan on making draws full of handmade socks for me and everyone else in my family.

    I make socks for myself and my mom. I always have a pair of socks on the needles as they’re a nice travel project. I’m planning a pair of tights, if I can just find the right pattern.
