This is not a rumor or a joke. I am quite serious. I am going to give away a new book by Chrissy Gardiner called Toe-Up!
A little bit about the book:
The way Chrissy designed her book is very helpful and friendly for any knitter, no matter if you know how to knit socks, or you have never even tried to do that. Although the name of the book is suggesting that you will be introduced to the method of starting your sock from a toe, Chrissy is spending some time at the beginning of her book on all known ways of making socks. First 50 plus pages of this book tell you about different cast-on methods using double-pointed needles or a long circular needle. There is a separate talk about toes and heels, how to know your size, what yarn to use, and so on. There are patterns of different socks designed by Chrissy that you just follow. They all are very cute and interesting. You also can learn how to come up with your own design. The worksheets are offered for your convenience if you want to calculate your own heel or toe part of a sock. Chrissy Gardiner is a designer and socks, as she says herself, is her "addiction". She designs all kinds of knitwear as well. You can see her designs on her Ravelry page.
