Great start for those new people like me!

This book is very helpful on most things, but there are a lot of explaining and not a lot of photos, plus the photos are not always very clear on which piece of yarn is what. This book does a wonderful job on teaching basic english style knitting and how to read patter...
This book is very helpful on most things, but there are a lot of explaining and not a lot of photos, plus the photos are not always very clear on which piece of yarn is what. This book does a wonderful job on teaching basic english style knitting and how to read patterns. This book will NOT teach you very well how to make tubes (socks and mittens) nor how to use double pointed needles very well. If you are looking for a nice 101 this is your book a lot of my friends who wanted to start simple projects have photocopied this book over and over again. However, if you are looking for more of a leap off from what you know look at it in the store. This book isn't a bad book at all, but there are some pitfals that me and my knitting buddies have found with this book.

This is yet another book published quickly to get the author on the bandwagon because everyone is knitting again. Her writing tone is contrite and lame. She tries to teach you using 'hipster' language but it would be more easier to understand if she just used plain English. Her subtitles for different categories are downright silly and often have sexual tones. The line drawings of hands and string positions are difficult to interpret. She devotes one measly paragraph to 'intarsia' which is using more than one color to knit. It made no sense to me, yet quite of few of her patterns require this technique to produce the finished product.
