Knitting More Circles Around Socks is Antje Gillingham’s follow-up to Knitting Circles Around Socks. While not strictly a beginner’s guide to knitting socks, it has some really useful diagrams and tips. The book is divided into two sections: cuff down socks, and toe up socks. Each section starts with a pattern for a basic sock; knit two at a time on circular needles (to ensure evenness). The patterns are not particularly innovative: a slip-stitch pattern, simple cables, diagonal ribbing to name a few, but all are written specifically for knitting two at a time. There is also a handy guide to converting traditional double-pointed needle sock patterns to circular needles.
Antje Gillingham was born and raised in Germany, where she learned to knit as a young girl. In 1982 she relocated to the beautiful central coast of California and lived there for the next 17 years.
When her husband's job brought the family to Tennessee, Antje rediscovered her infatuation with knitting. She soon opened a knitter's haven called The Knitting Nest, a successful knitting shop in the heart of historic downtown Maryville, Tennessee.
