Learn How to Knit: Easy Knitting - A Quick Start Instruction Guide on Knitting for Beginners

Would you like to learn how to knit beautiful sweaters, socks, jackets, gloves and more warm accessories for your kids and family? How about knitting for baby?

Here's a little history on knitting: Knitting in always associated with arrival of a new born. The sight of a pregnant mother, knitting small sweaters for her child is a well known scene for many. It is said that when you knit a sweater or a scarf with your own hands, and gift it to your loved ones, it signifies the concern and love that you feel towards them.

During ancient times it was compulsory for all young women to be acquainted with the art of knitting. But due to the invention of knitting machines, it became more of a recreational activity.

Knitting, literary means the method by which a thread or a yarn is weaved to prepare a cloth. Thread loops which hold together al the threads is known as stitches. These loops or stitches are pulled through each other. The two stitching needles hold the active loops until a new loop is put through them. Although knitting by using machines belongs to the contemporary times, the art has its roots, in the ancient Egypt civilization. During an excavation in Egypt a beautifully knitted cotton sock was found, which dates to the later half of the first millennium AD. The first Commercial application of knitting was done in Paris in the year 1527, when the first knitting trade guild was started.

Immediately after the invention of the knitting machine, hand knitting lost its importance. But recent study shows that at the turn of the 21st century, this art has regained its position and is the rage with the people in the metros.

My guess is that knitting is such a therapuetic pasttime and can reduce stress and anxiety in these difficult times. And you are being productive at the same time. The hobby of knitting is a very worthwhile craft to take up, especially "baby knitting!".

From knitting hats to knitting for baby, this book is a "Quick Start Guide" to easy knitting and will get you started with your first knitting creation and the wonderful world of Knitting!
