I finally mastered knitting in the round after reading the simple and easy to follow instructions in this book. I had watched a couple of videos about it, but still made a mess; I had it conquered on the second try with this book in front of me. As a beginning knitter who really doesn't plan to go much beyond basics, this guide will provide the little tips that keep my projects fun and not so challenging that I abandon them. Very useful!

I have scores of books on knitting but none of them are as good as this one. I love it so much I sent my daughter a copy.

I purchased this book for my Mother for Mother's Day,and you should have seen the look on her face.She was so excited,it made me feel really good inside.Because knitting means so much to her,it accually brought tears to her eyes,thats when I knew I made a great purchase.The book explained everything so clearly,I almost wanted to start knitting myself,such a joy.I recommend this to anyone who is a veteran,or just beginning in the field of knitting.I have to give it up to Barnes&Noble,they again have came through for me,I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.
