    1. Excellent! The directions are clearer than most, and include a guide to picking up stitches that's the best I've ever read. I love the patterns and how versatile they are, and the sizing directions. Already 75% done with Pitter Patter, next up Frolic, and then something sweet for myself :) The only thing I would recommend to readers is if you've never tried one sock on one needle, DON'T start with two. It gets really confusing if you don't already understand how to knit a single sock on a single [...]

    2. I like the technique that is presented. However I am having some trouble figuring it out. I think that with a little bit of free time and minimal distractions that I will be able to figure it out. One thing that I do like about this book is that all the patterns can be adapted to allow for DPN knitting. Which, for someone that is having trouble getting the 2 at a time on one circular thing down I think it is a good idea. There are quite a few sock patterns in this book that I do want to try. The [...]

    3. I recently learned using circular needles to knit one sock at a time (Cat Borhdi's book Socks Soar), so I was intrigued when I saw this. It seems to be straight forward instructions. As soon as I finish the 2nd socks I'm working on, I want to try this method out. I think it would be especially useful when making small modifications to a pattern, but forget to write it down, and invariably forget about it when knitting the 2nd sock of the pair.

    4. Although none of the sock patterns are particularly unique or exciting the technique is one that makes me excited. Also the way the patterns are written seem so much clearer than many - I like how she separated out each size instructions very clearly (as opposed to the usual method of bracketed numbers which can be easy to loose track of)

    5. Guaranteed 2 matching socks when done!!Great tutorial on socks. Step by step directions to knit both socks at the same time. Gets tricky part-way through, but if you follow her precise directions, it works!

    6. I have the first edition of this book and my first complaint is that the pattern shown on the cover isn't included in the patterns in the book. WTH?! I see now that the book has a different cover so perhaps I wasn't the only person ticked off by this HUGE error. That aside, however, this method intrigues me and after several failed attempts over the past three years I think I may have actually figured it out. Maybe. :) I'm still working on the legs of my first pair so we'll see as time goes by h [...]

    7. I do like the patterns in this book and some of the helpful hints are great. I do wish that the pictures matched the actual pattern. In some cases the picture shows a crew sock and the pattern is for calf length sock. If I wasn't fairly new to sock knitting, I probably would have realized what was going on with the pattern before getting so far along, but I didn't. One thing I would like to say is that heals of these socks end up HUGE, if you do try her patterns, do it her way once and if you fi [...]

    8. I didn't think her method was worth the trouble but I did like some of the patterns.I've now looked up the corrections for the book and see why I was having so much trouble with the technique. If I printed the corrections out there'd be seven pages. Seven. And a lot of them are on the technique itself's pages, not just patterns. I don't think I'll try to make anything from this book. I wouldn't trust that any of the patterns were right. Even the ones without corrections, I'd just figure they had [...]

    9. I tried one pair of socks from this book, but read the 2-at-a-time instructions wrong when it came to starting the heel. I tried to rip back those rows, but couldn't figure out how to get the socks back on the needles. This was my first attempt at socks. Since then, I made baby socks on dpn's for an expecting friend. That helped me understand the construction of the heel of the sock. Today, after much procrastinating for fear of messing it up again, I cast on a new pair of socks from the 2-at-a- [...]

    10. I liked this book. I have read many books on doing 2 at a time socks on circulars with one circular or two. By many I mean about 10. I own a few and I have knitted about 4-5 pairs of socks on circulars, two at the same time. This book wasn't as detailed or didn't offer as much additional information as some I have added to my collection. I read this one from the library. I tend to do that with knitting books, then I buy the ones that have what I want. I have the most trouble with turning the hee [...]

    11. So if you’ve shied away from socks because they just seemed too complicated (or because you hate working on double-pointed needles)—or if you’ve found yourself looking for one-legged friends to bestow your single socks upon—give 2-At-A-Time Socks a try.See the full review at NightsAndWeekends: nightsandweekends/arti

    12. Bought it awhile ago, tried a pair, messed it up. I'm ready to try again, but now I'm curious about the top-down-2-at-a-time technique. And I have 3 projects on the sticks, one slightly missing that I really need to complete before the other 2. Gotta search for it and hope I didn't leave it somewhere. And am interested in a couple of other projectsgh.

    13. This a great book with good illustrations on how to knit 2 socks at a time using the magic loop method. There are also a number of very nice socks pattern for fingering weight to sport/worsted weight. It is a book worth getting.

    14. These are top-down socks. A bit less stellar than I'd expected. I've seen this technique on video but wanted a text to follow. I like the many sock patterns in the book but most are short (not knee-high). A good book for basic library. Spiral format is super.

    15. After checking it out from the library, I loved it so much I bought it. The technique is clear, well explained and well illustrated. I actually want to knit all the patterns. In fairness, I am already comfortable with the Magic Loop technique.

    16. I'm loving this method for knitting socks. It's awesome to see the progress and when i'm done, i've actually got a pair of socks instead of having to start all over for sock #2. I'm working on the berry pattern, easy repeat, in a blue/white yarn.

    17. I enjoyed the book, but you must have an extensive knowledge of knitting though. It would be quite interesting if I had more knowledge I wish I did. Perhaps I will revisit this book after I master knitting a bit more.

    18. First edition of the book includes lots of errata. Took a lot of effort to get the corrections (repeated e-mails to the publisher) and then updating my copy of the book. After all that, it turns out I HATE, HATE, HATE this technique.

    19. This is an excellent book. It illustrates the technique very easily. If you want to learn to knit 2 at a time with only one circular needle I recommend it.

    20. The book isn't bad, I just lack the ability to learn a new technique and the coordination to handle two balls of yarn at once.

    21. I used to own a copy of this book and I thought it would make my socks go faster. Not a chance. It seemed more difficult and it seemed to suck the joy out of making socks (for me anyway)

    22. Very helpfulI can't wait to try out two at a time. The book is well written, keeping the techniques simple and easy to follow.

    23. Still struggling to master this method of sock knitting, but I will do it! So so success. I am getting better though.

    24. I love the patterns from this book! Even as an avid knitter, I have avoided socks and DPNS. This book makes socks amazingly simple. I cannot wait for the toe-up book by Melissa Morgan-Oakes.

    25. Not sure that I am capable at this point of making two socks at the same time. I am attempting to make one sock that fits. If that works out, I may revisit this book. All patterns are cuff down.
