Simple Socks

“I wonder if you should call these A-HA socks, because once you get it, you want to say ‘a-ha!’ and knit a dozen pairs. I don’t think I’ll ever knit a pair of socks with any other heel or toe!”
—Ann Budd, author of The Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns and The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns, and managing editor of Interweave Knits

“Priscilla has done it again! Her technical ingenuity never ceases to amaze me. In Simple Socks, she has given us all a gift of a new way to knit western-style socks. Priscilla’s fans (including myself) will love all the ethnic design ideas which are included and can be adapted to her new basic sock shaping. Even people who don’t knit socks will find technique tips worth more than the purchase price. Plenty of clear illustrations to follow, too!”
—Kristin Nicholas, designer, illustrator, and author, Knitting the New Classics (Sterling Publishing), Knitting Today’s Classics (reissued by Lark as Knitting Beautiful Classics), Knitting for Baby (Stewart, Tabori & Chang), and Kids Knitting (Artisan).
