    My favorite gift for young knitters

    I love this book for its quality, entertainment value, and instruction. But most of all, I love the way it introduces young and new knitters to the "community" of knitters which exists today, in that it encourages and provides a way for the knitter to gift and give his/her wares.<BR/><BR/>This is a welcome addition to the "Gigi Knits" series.

    Learn to knit and give to charity at the same time

    This is a wonderful how-to book written for Tweens and Teens but it is an easy to follow instruction book for anyone wanting to learn how to knit. I might just revive my knitting needles and give it a try once more.<BR/><BR/>A two page poem starts the book out with another poem on the third page. They are all about learning to knit and purl. AND it is rhyming poetry ¿ something that I can understand!<BR/><BR/>The next page gives you a list of basic materials you will need to begin knitting. A four page refresher on how to knit comes next, followed by the 2 page how-to on purling. The next six pages describe what stitches you will get when you combine the knit and purl techniques.<BR/><BR/>Then there are eight patterns. The steps are clearly written and easy to follow. Each pattern is something very useful such as a dishcloth or a cat mat.<BR/><BR/>The final page tells about Gigi¿s Kindness Corps which is a group that makes knitted objects for charity. What a wonderful idea to not only teach a young child how to knit but how to share with those less fortunate as well. Check out her web site for more information and patterns.
