MEDIA REVIEWS

Discover knitting know-how in a handy reference guide. Find out about equipment, materials, patterns, charts, design, techniques and assembly. I love the section on yarn and schematics. The techniques sections are accompanied by photos and the instructions are easy to follow. I did not learn anything from it, but then I have 50 years' experience in knitting and knitwear design. I think this book is very suited to the beginner, especially the one who wants to knit, but does not quite get it. I was like that aged 10 when school and my mother had tried to teach me and failed. Then I just picked up the knitting needles and wool and taught myself. I don't think I have ever put those needles down. I would have loved a book like this back then.
