5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ann Budd Never Disappoints 5 juillet 2011
Par D. Boyken - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Basically, any book by Ann Budd warrants a look, and this doesn't disappoint.

She starts by talking briefly about things like fit, yarn, needles, and general techniques, but also discusses heels and toes in more depth. Then the rest of the book is split into two sections: top-down and toe-up, and each starts with more detail about cast-on/cast-off options for that method.

And, of course, there are patterns. They're stunning, of course. Each is photographed beautifully, with detail shots of toes and heels so you know what you're getting into. There is a sidebar of "Design Techniques" for each one, which lists the techniques you'll need to knit that particular pattern. There are notes about how you might make modifications. Sidebars about picking the right kind of yarn. Stories about how and why the designer came up with that particular sock. The sizes of the socks are given in detail, too: circumference, length from toe to heel, length from cuff to heel. I honestly can't think of any details that are missed.

She knows how to collect talent, too. The designs in this book are from true sock-masters. Cookie A, Kathryn Alexander, Veronik Avery, Cat Bordhi, Nancy Bush, Evelyn A Clark, Chrissy Gardiner, Priscilla Gibson-Roberts, Anne Hanson, Eunny Jang, Melissa Morgan-Oakes, Deborah Newton, Clara Parkes, Meg Swansen, and Anna Zilboorg.

But wait! There's more!

The book comes with a 95-minute DVD of Ann Budd showing off the socks, and going into detail to show you various cast-ons, cast-offs, and so on. You've got over an hour and a half of video complimenting the book's already clear instructions. Her presentation style during the little show-and-tell of each sock design seemed a little nervous, but as soon as she gets into the instructional portion of the video, the content is gold. Sometimes it really helps to SEE someone show you Kitchener stitch, you know?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Patterns by Leading Designers, Plus DVD 7 juillet 2011
Par Lynne E. - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is beautifully designed, has a pleasing variety of interesting-to-knit sock patterns by leading designers, and loads of valuable instructional material. However, because the how-to information is organized around specific sock projects, this is more of a pattern book than a reach-for-it reference on sock-knitting techniques. For example, although many heel styles are explained (round, short-row, band, Dutch, etc.), the actual instructions are not all grouped together in a single chapter on "heels"--instead, you may have to go to one of the patterns that uses a particular heel type to find the actual step-by-step instructions.

The book includes ten top-down patterns, and seven toe-up patterns. Cast-on and bind-off techniques are illustrated with clear line drawings. Patterns are written out in standard sock pattern style (general information, leg, heel, foot, toe, finishing--or the reverse). Charts are included when appropriate (twisted-stitch and colorwork designs). There is a general chapter on designing, and there are notes and design tips scattered throughout.

A "Design Techniques" box accompanies each pattern. The feature breaks down the sock construction by the techniques used, and provides a "road map" to the page locations for additional how-to instructions on the techniques. For example, Veronik Avery's "Happy Go Lucky Boot Socks" pattern uses these techniques: (1) top down construction, (2) designing with slip stitches, (3) working with five double-pointed needles, (4) any elastic cast-on, (5) round heel, (6) wedge toe, and (7) Kitchener stitch.

All of the patterns are beautiful, as you would expect from these famous sock designers: Cookie A., Nancy Bush, Anne Hanson, Veronik Avery, Deborah Newton, Evelyn A. Clark, Meg Swansen, Ann Budd, Chrissy Gardiner, Kathryn Alexander, Priscilla Gibson-Roberts, Eunny Jang, Melissa Morgan-Oakes, Anna Zilboorg, and Cat Bordhi.

The book also includes a 95-minute DVD. Ann Budd discusses the individual projects (displaying the actual knitted samples and describing the techniques each uses), and demonstrates the knitting techniques. If you learn best by watching someone else knit, you will really like this "bonus" DVD. Because of the DVD, the book can dispense with step-by-step still photographs of the more complicated techniques, and include many more close-ups of the knitted socks themselves.

As a pattern book, I rate this at 5 stars; as a technical reference book, at 3.5 to 4 stars. My favorite Ann Budd sock knitting book is still Getting Started Knitting Socks, for new knitters. Two really excellent sock-knitting reference books are The Sock Knitter's Workshop: Everything Knitters Need to Knit Socks Beautifully, for somewhat experienced knitters; and Sensational Knitted Socks, for all knitters, regardless of experience. Two personal favorite sock-knitting books are Folk Socks, which has a lot of interesting patterns and good general instructions; and Lucy Neatby's Cool Socks Warm Feet, a very popular book by my favorite designer, who is probably the most technically accomplished knitter on the planet.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Wonderful Book of Sock Knitting for the Intermediate and Advanced Knitter 16 juillet 2011
Par Fairbanks Reader - Bonnie Brody - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Ann Budd is my favorite sock knitting writer. Her book, Getting Started Knitting Socks (Getting Started series) is my sock knitting bible. This book, Sock Knitting Master Class: Innovative Techniques + Patterns from Top Designers is for the more advanced sock knitter. It is filled with wonderful patterns of all sorts - lace, cable, intarsia, and entrelac.

The book has an opening section that contains information on fit, comfort, yarn and gauge, needle choice, heels, toes, and aesthetics. It provides excellent information on the construction of socks and the choice of yarns. The patterns in this book are either top-down or toe-up construction, about half of each. Ms. Budd includes great information on cast-ons for top-down and toe-up patterns as well as bind-offs. The book includes a DVD of innovative patterns and techniques from top designers. It is excellent.

My favorite patterns in the top-down section are:

French Market socks with highlights of blue and green triangles and squares.

Twisted Stitch Stockings in a lovely soft gray hue that are nearly knee-high.

Knot Socks in a light variegated orange, knit with cables and ribbing.

Mock Cables and Lace in a dark rust color, perfect for wearing with sandals or flats. Ms. Budd states "I chose a lace pattern that gives the illusion of a wide cable along the front and back of the leg".

Of the toe-up patterns, my favorites are:

Stealth Argyles in a brown and blue horizontal striped pattern. Ms. Budd states of this pattern, "Because patterns produced by shadow knitting only reveal themselves when viewed at certain angles, the patterns magically appear and disappear as the piece moves".

Terpander socks knit in a chartreuse green. Terpander "is an ancient Greek poet and musician who used a lyre in composition and performance". The composition of these socks brings to mind the shape of lyre.

All told, this is a wonderful book. It is a great resource and the patterns are wonderful and easy to understand. I don't recommend this for beginning sock knitters but it would be an excellent addition to the library of any intermediate or advanced knitter. Thank you Ms. Budd for this extraordinary book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful patterns, in-depth techniques - a worthy addition to your sock knitting library. 12 juillet 2011
Par Donna Ancypa Holmes - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Whether you have a sock knitting library as I do, or are looking for a first sock book, I recommend Sock Knitting Master Class. The patterns feature a wide range of techniques (cables, lace, intarsia, entrelac, two-color knitting, toe-up, top down) from many designers - this would be a good book to sample different designers' styles and sock constructions before delving more deeply.

For me, the techniques DVD is what makes this book more accessible to knitters of varying skill levels (or those who have a favorite heel/cast-on/bind-off and stick with it). You see a cast-on suggested in a pattern and learn how to do the cast-on by watching Ann Budd demonstrate it. She's warm and encouraging, showing how to improve your knitting and fix mistakes (like gusset holes) in an approachable way. If I had one wish, it would be for a more detailed discussion of negative ease (or how closely the sock should fit). However, there's enough other information about good fit that it's highly likely a newer knitter will get good results.

I'm looking forward to knitting my way through Sock Knitting Master Class. I think knitters at many different skill levels would find it both a useful reference and lovely to work from.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent resource 12 août 2011
Par CJ - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Note: I have not yet knitted one single sock, not even a practice sock. I've been knitting for three and a half years, mostly gloves, scarves, hats, and baby things. It's going to be awhile before I have the experience to critique a knitting book effectively, so I'm hoping that my beginner perspective will prove useful.

With all the books and information available on sock knitting, I just decided to start with this book. I rated it four stars because it was missing some of the info I was hoping to find. This could be for a couple of reasons: My expectations were too high (as a beginner sock knitter, I'm not familiar with what to reasonably expect in a sock book) -or- What I wanted to learn could simply only be learned through experience -or- I misunderstood what this book was meant to contain (again, due to lack of experience on my part).

I did read the book three times through, it was fairly engaging.

- examples of common heels, heel stitches for function, and toes
- examples of sock knitting on various needle types and arrangements
- design tips for your own creations
- notes from the designers on why they did what they did
- how to measure the foot and how much yarn to use for the foot size and yarn gauge
- yarn tips for each pattern. Example: If you want to have X result/effect with Y design feature, use Z fiber/yarn
- lots of technique tutorials and instructions (some clear and easy, some a little more complicated but I'm confident I'll understand as I actually try it)
- the patterns chosen use a mix up of components (heels, toes, top-down/toe-up, etc) to illustrate the combos/customizations possible.
- several components/variations explained from both toe-up and top-down directions, including cast-on/off options.

- not as comprehensive as hoped for. I understand they included just the most common heels, toes, etc.; but there were at least as many options left out as there were included. Maybe they were trying to keep the page number or price down or some such reason, but I would prefer to have everything in one book.
- little to no comparison of component choice. Example: A/B/C type heel is preferable for X heel size/shape or Y purpose (working, hiking, etc.) -or- X heel is generally preferable to Y heel because [reason]. Even just saying if there was no real difference between them would have been helpful (if that were the case; I don't know!). I know this knowledge will come with time, I had just hoped to start off with more advice.

As for the DVD, it's a video/visual demonstration of selected techniques/chapters. It's not the entire book on video, but it could be pretty helpful to some. I personally was unimpressed and probably won't use it, but people learn differently so the DVD doesn't factor into my rating.

Although there seemed to be a nice variety of designs (lace, cables, thigh-high, slouchy, etc) I wasn't impressed by the patterns. There were only two (out of 17) which I would consider making as is from the book. But the patterns weren't really the point of my buying the book, so I didn't include that in my rating either.

I'm pretty happy with this book. Again, it's not a comprehensive or beginner book but it will definitely come in handy.
