5.0 out of 5 stars THE book for first time knitters 19 April 2008
This is the book that I ALWAYS get new knitting parents and grandparents to buy. It has a clear consise how to section with good photos.
There is the obligatory baby scarf (I don't understand why they have one in a baby book). There is a pair of bootees/socks knitted on two needles without any picking up of stitches and only one seam to sew up.

I have great success with this with new knitters. All the yarns are easily substituted is unavailable in your area.The patterns are fairly basic but do wonders for installing confidence to new knitters

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 19 July 2010
I was so looking forward to receiving this book and to be honest I was really disappointed when it arrived. The patterns are not that useful - who needs or wants a knitted bib?? Who would put their baby in a scarf? The quality of the knitted finished items in pretty poor, I am a amatuer knitter and I think my finishing is better. I would recommend a Debbie Bliss book over and above this one. I had such high hopes for it and sadly I have not knitted a single item in the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Baby Knits 14 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not a new knitter, but I found this book particularly helpful in detail and finishing tips. The patterns are very easy to follow and what I have done so far has been much better than I had expected when I first received the book. Although it is simple knitting, the results are really quite excellent and may appear to have been made by a more experienced knitter. I can recommend this book and will certainly keep it in my collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware, Debbie Bliss wool is expensive! 28 Feb 2010
By wenga
This book gives no information for those wishing to substitute the debbie bliss brand of wool for other wool. Yes the designs seem simple enough for those who are new to knitting/haven't knitted for a while, but Debbie Bliss wool is very expensive and the author doesn't tell you how to substitute the wool with cheaper brands. I planned to make the lovely baby blanket, but might wait a while as I'm not prepared to pay over 50 for the wool, especially as I haven't knitted for a while & so might make a mess of it!
