I've made the Seduction Socks a few times and absolutely LOVE this pattern! It's so warm and delightful to look at with the lacy pattern. Thank you so much for giving us this pattern FREE. I plan on making more for Christmas presents. It's easy to follow and the results are fabulous!

Response to Limara, You didn't have to go into the magazine offer. Above it was a PDF symbol and a "Download the Pattern" You just click this and off you go. I've been in this site for quite awhile. I've never been asked for a credit card. Just take a second and "Read", Honey.

I just ordered the Bazaar Socks, which have again become available, and it feels like Christmas - though nearly March, to have these wonderful patterns. After a few socks as Christmas gifts were so well received, and envied by those who didn't get them, I will be VERY busy making socks, and may as well have fun with great patterns! Thank you so much, Sandi - Interweave Publications have been so inspirational for me, I think since the business began. I have been a fiber, and fiber magazine junkie forever. Still have some old and beloved issues of Spin-Off and Piecework.

Hello, I wish I could answer Mary F. about her opinion that hand knit socks are uncomfortable. Maybe it depends on the style of shoe. I have been knitting plain wool socks for my son and grandsonwho did live in Alaska for some time. They really love them. Then I made some for daughters, and a cousin, of lighterweight yarn, Neveda fingering yarn, and they were appreciated, and did not cause discomfort. There are no toe seams or any other seams in my socks. I have not tried doing the fancy patterns on the legs part, but it looks like fun. There are other patterns that are such a find gauge that needle size is 00. And they are beautiful. The foot part is knitted pretty plain, for comfort. I have found that I solve my chronic cold feet problem in winter by wearing lightweight wool socks with just about any shoe that fits me. And I sleep in a pair on cold nights. Thanks so much for the patterns. Carolyn

I had dyed a beautiful warm black walnut sock yarn that was sitting waiting for the right patern to show it off. Thanks for making it simple. Seeing on the screen the end product brings it to life. Ann Budds Diagonal Rib has garnered many comments, in fact at my monthly hand-spinners guild the pens and pencils were flying. I did 2 socks on the majic loop 42" #1needles the stitch definition is just great. Oh Happy Feet and unashamed doastful owner. Many, Many, THANKS Happy 2009

Thank you for the sock patterns. I have made several small pairs of socks but none of my family like hand knitted socks, so now i knit them for charity. Cant wait to knit these socks for someone who will need and appreciate them.Im hoping to buy equivalent yarn here in Aussieland. I MUST try the double circular needle method for knitting 2 socks at the one time as i dont seem to be able to make 2 socks identical. Happy New Year all. Sue

Viola thank you for the sock patterns. I started to really knit socks about seven years ago. i had bought a pair of winter hiking boots in Calgary, then wondered what to whear in them. people were wearing a heavier sock..looked handknit to me..and I thot ..I can do that..I know how to knit socks..since then I've knit socks for myself, family, friends..it's nice to have a request for a pair of handknit socks for Christmas..I don't always use heavy yarn but use the fancier yarns which make my socks nicer and more desireable. I like the fact that they are a small project to take along wherever I travel, especially airtravel. I use wooden needles (5). there are a great conversation starter. I hope ypu don't mind but I forwarded this booklet on to several friends who have started to make socks as well. Merry Christmas to you and all the knitting friends. Viola

MaryF, my husband loves when I make his socks, infact he looks foward to them because he knows how much work and time I put into my knitting. He loves how I carefully pick a pattern and a specific yarn so it is something soft and something he can comfortably wear with his regular shoes without needing to wear bigger sizes or need to use them only for slippers at home. I have been knitting since I was 5, but making socks only since my husband asked me to try to make them. Since my very first pair I made for him , he only asked for more, so I can't see home made socks being uncomfortable or there wouldn't be so many of us working our fingers to the bone making them for our loved ones that wait anxiously for the next pair. Dont be so negative, why not try some of the new yarns and maybe you just may love wearing one of your own homemade socks you knit for yourself. Happy Holidays Everyone, and btw, thank you for my 5 free sock knitting patterns, I love every book and sock pattern I have. :)

Mother used to knit sock whle watching TV or reading!!My husband's dress socks were always grey patons beehive socks. mom has been gone 15 years and there remains 1 pair of socks that are kept for special occasions only. Yes it is worth the time and those tiny needles. I never liked knitting socks but with mother's passing and all the wonderful colours and dyed yarns I have a pair on the needles all the time...great funn ! I now knit while watching the hockey games....

Thank you so much! I'm looking forward to trying out these patterns as soon as "perfect" knitting 2 at a time on 1 circular. I borrowed Melissa Morgan-Oakes "2-at-a-time Socks" from the library yesterday, and successfully joined and knit the 1st round of each of the "Pitter Patter" little kid socks last evening. I like it so much that I'll probably purchase it in the near future (if Santa is out of the current edition!), and am considering buying the 'handpainted socks' book that Knitting Daily is advertising. You see, I suffer from SSS..."second sock syndrome," and I think I've found the cure!

Hand knitted socks are so uncomfortable, except as substitute slippers or bed socks. Especially the ones with the cables and other fancy patterns. You need shoes a size larger than normal so you socks will fit. They are quick and portable, but those are benefits for the knitter, not the sock wearer. Also, they are mostly covered up by shoes, pants, etc. Not worth the cost or the time for me. Also, although many ask questions in these blogs, I don't seem to see any answers. Does anyone ever get an answer personally that is not displayed online?

After venturing into the world of Fair Isle (and discovering how much one can learn when one totally screws up!) I will be SO HAPPY to go back to socks. All the kids get them this year, hung as "stockings" instead of the usual Christmas ones. Each of my 5 student workers also got a pair, and you would have thought I'd given them all A's! Never underestimate the power of handmade warmth on cold tootsies. If we all sent socks to Putin, think how happy the world would be! Thanks Sandi, and Merry Christmas!

I've been knitting socks for 7-8 years. They're so portable and wonderful to work on - expecially in the summer when larger projects are "too hot". I really like the look of Lisa Shroyer's William Street Socks and am thrilled that they are designed with thicker ankles than standard sock patterns provide! It will be nice not to have to modify a pattern as I knit! Two more Christmas projects to finish and I'm back to socks!

The patterns look wonderful, but I won't have time to invest in them until after the "Christmas" sweater for my husband is completed.
