Schurch & Parrott
The Sock Knitter's Handbook
This is a comprehensive handbook for knitters who love, or would like to love, knitting socks. It's loaded with information appropriate for beginners and experts alike, yet it's compact enough to fit easily in a small knitting bag. The opening line of the introduction sets the stage, "All things are difficult until they are easy." Schurch and Parrott aptly apply this to sock knitting, which often mystifies even experienced knitters, and they go on to offer a wonderful guide to make the process easy. The photographs of the different types of heels are reason enough to spend time with this book!
