Pat O'Brien

I have always wanted to try knitting socks but for some reason I find them very intimidating. The first thing my mother learned to knit when she was 8 yrs. old was socks. Her aunt taught her that socks incorporate almost everything there is to know about knitting. If you can knit socks, you can knit anything. I think it is time I take the plunge. I have always heard that Charlene's books were the best. Your blog has confirmed this for me. Thanks for the detailed review!


I just finished my first pair of socks and I am enthralled! I would love a chance to win this book. Thanks!


I am working on socks and I would like to make some of those heels in my socks they look interesting.


Hey, I love to knit, socks socks are fun and this book looks really good, so count me in....

My husband actually surprised me with Charlene's book when I told him I needed a good sock book. What a guy!
I use it a lot and even got it spiral bound at the print shop where I worked. So convenient.
Please include me in the drawing. And, thanks, Jennifer for the blog, always enjoy reading about your activities.


This looks like a "must-have" book! I recently found two almost complete pairs of socks in my knitting basket ~ I can't believe I left them when they were almost done, but I'll be happy to have 2 new pair soon.


Looks like a great book for sock knitters. Please count me in!


I am just starting to knit sock and I would love a chance to win this book.


Enjoying your blog, and I would enjoy the book if I was the lucky winner!!


Love the yarn the socks on the cover of their book is made from; maybe I'll be the lucky winner and take up sock knitting!!

Keep bloggin' Jennifer.



Wow! How lucky are you to have been to a class by Charlene Schurch! Thanks for letting us know about the book - it looks fantastic!

Kathy Seltenhofer

My favorite thing to knit took me some time to learn but once I did I keep on with at least two pairs on the needles all the time. Sure gets me through some stressful times.

Mary in Carol Stream

Wow! I have Charlene's first two books and used them often, even though I don't produce as many socks as I start. I'd love an opportunity to look at her new book!!

Kay in North Carolina

Oh, the book looks great. Thanks for doing the raffle. If I don't win, I might just have to buy one!


I almost always knit plain stockinette socks because that way I don't have to think about them; I carry them everywhere in my purse and pull them out whenever I have a few minutes. I really would love this book, I'm sure I would learn a ton.

Carolyn in NC

If you random number generator is Wilma picking a number off the floor like she has in the past, please take a picture...........that just cracks me up.

However you choose, I'd love a sALL IN THE SAME PATTERN. Time to try new things!

Thanks for a chance to receive this book! Cheers!


The book sounds absolutely fantastic, and it may just be the motivation I need to really get into sock knitting.


I recently completed my 4th pair of socks (1st toe up). I'm a biomedical engineer, so I think a sock knitting book written by an engineer would be perfect! (sjn821 on Rav)


I love to knit plain stockinette socks. I always have several going. Thanks for the chance to win.


I love knitting socks. That book looks great!


Four years ago (really? that long?) you showed a photo of a sock featuring Charlene's Cuban Heel, and that is when I truly fell into sock lust. I actually pulled up the picture at work and showed people. It did not drive them into a frenzy like it did for me, and they thought I was odd for lusting over the heel of a sock. I have yet to buy one of Charlene's books, and I am truly not sure why. Maybe it's my own form of tantric knitting?

Susie B

I, too, love making socks. It would be great to have this wonderful book. Tell Wilma to pick me, pick me, pick me!

Wool Winder

That looks like a great book! Sensational Socks has been very helpful to me when I need a stitch pattern to "dress up" the leg of a simple sock.


That book looks fantastic!


Count me in on this book! I took a class from her at Maryland Sheep and Wool several years ago. And I thought I knew about knitting socks, too......


I would love to win one of her books. I, too, am one of her fans!


Charlotte's books are wonderful. I thought I'd never knit socks until I took the famous "Silver's Sock Class" tutorial and now it's all I ever want to knit! This latest book looks wonderful, thanks for letting us know about it.


Holy Kamoly! You really KNOW her!! Be still my heart and mind: stop being jealous! You are one fortunate woman, you know that?!? (Can you tell I'm a "Charlene fan" too? LOL)

As far as the book is concerned, you can always pick me...I definitely wouldn't turn down such a priceless treasure as a book by one of the great, all-time sock designers. In other words, PICK ME! (Note that I'm not bashful.)

Raelene Dawson

Never thought I would ever knit socks - now I always have one on the go for travelling and waiting. Great to learn new techniques!! Love the photos of the sock book. What a great way to illustrate clearly what you are trying to teach.

Jane J,

I love her books!



I'm also a huge fan of Charlene's. Her "Sensational Socks" books were must-haves when I started knitting socks. I think this new book is destined to be in my library too.

Beth in Ohio

Yep, please count me in too!
Thanks for a chance to win another great book for my knitting library.


Oh, my goodness! What sock experiences you have had. I, too, would have guessed you would learn little from a general sock course.

Thanks for a chance to win the book. As Donkey says in the Shreck movies, "Pick me! Pick me!"


You know I am!

I have Charlene's first two books and don't make a sock without them. I am always recommending her books to others too, as they are so well laid out with great instructions and photos.
