Hey guys, I just finished knitting all the projects in my learning how to knit book and now I want to try...dun dun dun...socks! I found two books that have good reviews but I was wondering if anyone has any advice for one or the other for someone who has never knit socks before. Thanks!

1-Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd

or

2-Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch

I learned how to knit socks with Getting Started Knitting Socks. I found that the instructions made more sense to me than anything else I had seen. It also has a lot of pictures that explain things. I would recommend that you look through both books (if you can) and see if the instructions and the pictures click for you. But I really do love Ann Budd's book. Very detailed instructions, lots of pictures, and lots and lots of options for every kind of sock. I especially like that there are just basic sock instructions for different weights of yarn.

I have both, and I actually like the Ann Budd book better at the moment.  But both are good.  Another suggestion is to check the local library for a copy of either one to check out before you buy.
