Knitwear designer Melissa Morgan-Oakes revolutionized the world of sock-making with "2-at-a-Time Socks".
Her ingenious approach showed delighted knitters how to simultaneously create two socks on a single circular needle.
With that book, yarn enthusiasts said goodbye forever to second sock syndrome, the frustration of completing one beautiful hand-knit sock, only to remember that another must be made.
Now, Morgan-Oakes turns the approach on its head or rather, its toe with "Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks".
Knitters adore toe-up socks for both novelty and practicality.
Knitters can try on the sock as they work, they never run out of yarn before the foot is complete, and they avoid needing the dreaded kitchener stitch to finish off the toe.
Many swear that toe-up socks just plain feel more comfortable, too.
