This book is a great starting point for improving basic knitting skills. The written directions are supplemented with very clear illustrations; I have used this book as a reference for other projects. I have made many of the projects in this book. The finished projects have made great gifts for new moms I know!!

After checking this book out twice at the library, I've decided to buy it. Unlike the many other knitting books I've thumbed through or borrowed from the library, this one is filled with great projects (no duds here!). It's also more modern than many others, which seem outdated or too frou-frou for my taste. I'm new to knitting, and this appealing book makes it hard to pick which project to start next! It will be a welcome addition to my permanent collection.

Knitting for Baby 30 Heirloom Projects with Complete How-to-Knit Instructions by Melanie Falick and Kristin Nicholas ISBN: 9781453268131 Ah another knitting book for baby patterns. Well although a LOT of my charity work is making things for babies and I'm a published crochet designer this book got my attention from not only the baby on the front but the colors combined on the sweater. Baby is real cute also! I was hoping to find some interesting patterns I might use for my charity knitting, just tired of the same 6 patterns for baby blankets I use. Love how it starts out with what knitting means to the authors. It is a work of love. Starts out with the tools of the trade and explains about them along with pictures. Love the little tips along the way, those are hard to come by. Shows how to cast on using many different methods and how to knit and purl, how to bind off and sew the seams. Has directions on how to make a checkered blanket, cushion and blocks. As projects go on other techniques for sewing and making different stitches are explained, in detail along with photos. My favorite would be the heart charted sweater. I have done them for a company once and loved the techniques and the charts are easy to understand. This even comes with an adult version! So many tips and techniques for circular knitting and DP needles as well. Nordic designs are what I would call for advanced knitters but even as a beginner once you have the gauge down there's no reason you can't tackle one of the Nordic sweater/charted designs. Just take your time because you will be working with multiple strands at one time. Toddler mittens with motifs on the outside are another favorite of mine. unlimited possibilities with just the basic pattern. Toys would be another big hit along with the felted diaper bag. What a treasure of patterns, tips and techniques in this book. Definitely one to add to your collection as a 'keeper'.

I learned to knit with this book. The projects start with basic skills and then build on each other. I took this out of the library twice before I bought it. I still use it and my daughter still plays with her blocks that I made her!
