Knitting More Circles Around Socks is the second volume of Antje Gillingham's sock books. This book clearly presents both her wonderful Cuff down methods, and her new instructions for knitting the socks toe up, as well as several patterns for each method.

I had the first book Knitting Circles Around Socks, and I loved it. I love this book even more. She expanded the sizing charts to include Children's socks, added sock anatomy diagrams for toe up socks to accompany the wonderful ones for cuff down socks, and plenty of clear pictures of the techniques for both methods of sock construction. There are tips and tricks included throughout the book on the best ways of managing the socks and yarn to prevent tangling and confusion.

The patterns included in this version take full advantage of some of the current sock yarns, including one for the sock blanks you unravel, Maizy, Fixations, Paca Peds, and some of the gorgeous patterned yarns. There are cables, lace and some terrific slipped and twisted stitch patterns.

This is the book I recommend to everyone who asks me how to knit socks two at a time, as one of the clearest step by step introductions to the method. Plus with the section on converting patterns for standard double pointed needles to the two at a time method, it's really a one stop shop for the technique, allowing you to move beyond the listed patterns to using any of the beautiful sock patterns out there.

As a long time sock knitter, I had looked for a book with good information on basics for toe up knitting, particularly heels for two socks at a time, on two circular needles. This was an impulse purchase, and probably one of the best I have ever made. The instructions, both cuff down and toe up, are superb and would be excellent for any level of knitter. I have already recommended it to friends.
Yes, you need to know basic knitting before starting the book, but I believe a sock novice could successfully use the simple patterns and learn along the way. The photography of the basics such as casting on, distribution of stitches, how to start knitting, etc. are very good and easy to follow. There are more complex socks for more advanced knitters and a nice variety of patterns.
The book is split with the first half being cuff down and the second toe up, so it is easy to find what you want. It is a clear read without idiotic commentary in the instructions.
If you know someone struggling to learn sock knitting, buy this book for them. (or at least suggest it!)
And even when I am not knitting, I enjoy the layout and writing...to read and think and plot my next pair!

You can do Better with any of the tutes on YouTube.
This book is hopelessly OUT OF DATE.
If you're looking for a tactile version of the information that is readily available, this is NOT it.
This book deals with Two circular needles instead of DPN's.
If you're looking for a way to do socks using Magic Loop in a fluent way, go to Ravelry and get Sockmatition's Toe Up.
You'll save Money, time, FrusTraTion and your sanity.

Antje Gillingham has written a very helpful book for knitters that teaches how to knit two socks at a time on circular needles either from the toe up or the cuff down. The patterns are attractive and easy to interpret and many don't use charts, which I like. The instructions are clear and the technique is one that all knitters should appreciate. No more will there be that one left over sock that we don't get to finish. Both will be knit at once. That is a real plus in my book.

I have several books now and this is just another wonderful book for knitting two-at-a-time. I prefer watching both socks growing at the same pace and not have to figure out how many inches the first sock was and comparing all the time. Two at a time is the only way for me to go.

I loved this book with its' easy to follow instuctions and patterns. Perfect for the experienced sock maker or the beginner. I have found a new favorite pattern and making 2 socks at once is going so quickly. I am going to purchase the first book also as I prefer to make socks cuff down. You can't go wrong with this pattern book.

The book is well written, good pictures & several patterns in various yarn weights. So far I've only knit one pair of socks from the book & it seemed rather odd at first because the instructions were much different from any other pattern I've used. I am happy with the completed pair of socks & ready to try another more complicated pattern.

I liked the idea of knitting both socks at one time because I've made other socks (1 at a time) and it always seems one fits slightly different than the other-which makes me crazy! This way if my tension is tighter on the heel, toe, etc. it's the same on both & it feels normal.
I already had "Knitting Circles around Socks: Knit Two at a Time on Circular Needles" and after checking out "Knitting More Circles Around Socks: Two at a Time, Toe Up or Cuff Down" from my local library I knew I had to own it too. I love it and I would buy from this seller again. I received the book in the promised condition very quickly and the price was great.
