Here is the best way to learn the wonderful craft of knitting socks. This close-up and personal video will guide you, beginner, as well as advanced knitter, through the easy techniques of making socks by hand.

All knitters will learn how to design their own socks in the size, stitch, or yarn of their choice. Once you place your sensitive feet in a pair of your own homemade socks, get ready the the happiest, warmest, and best dressed feet ever.
This DVD will enable you to follow or create your own patterns for Fair Isle socks, thick boot socks, classy dressy lace socks, cabled socks, intarsia socks, ribbed socks, baby socks, warm fuzzy angora socks, cotton socks plain socks, or with a little thought....Chirstmas stockings.
Using double pointed needles is one way to knit in the round and is a great way to start. Check out Leslye's other sock DVD entitled "Knitting Socks on a Single Circular Needle" as an alternative to using double points.
