    Not Your Mothers Knitting Book

    This is not your mothers knitting pattern book. If you are not currently a knitter, this book will not only give you the desire to learn this wonderful craft but it provides patterns that are written with you in mind. If you are a long time knitter, this book will make you want to grab the keys to go to the craft store for new yarn. This book takes the long time knitter or the new to the craft knitter to higher levels than has ever been available before. Now you can easily make beautiful projects that you will feel good about giving as gifts or wearing yourself. No more dull, old fashioned, knitting projects. The projects in this book are new, modern and updated fashions for the home or individual.

    The directions are so easy to follow. Each project is rated for the knitters ability level and is described in easy to read ratings at the beginning of each pattern and full size photos of the completed project.

    This book goes on to tell you what size needles you will need and the kind of yarn needed. The directions are easy to follow even for the beginning knitter.

    As a long time knitter, I was drawn to this book for its beautiful photos. It is packed with directions on knitting modern clothing, blankets and accessories. The photos are amazing!

    The author has taken knitting out of the ordinary & comfortable setting of the home and moved it to the Internet. She has taken the best in directions from online bloggers and added them in a book that will become a permanent book on my bookshelf and used many times.

    This book is not your normal "dull" patterns. It takes dull out of the world of knitting and replaces it with "bold" & "modern". Once you view the photos, you will want to pick up those long lost knitting needles and start knitting. If you are not currently a knitter, this book will give you the desire to learn this age old talent.

    You will find patterns for sweater, coats, scarves, socks, blanket, hat and even a baby top. I loved each and every pattern.

    I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a meanful craft or a long time knitter. I give it a 5 star on all levels from the photos to the directions. I loved this book. It would make a great addition to anyones personal library or as a gift. This book will appeal to teens as well as adults.
