Book Description

25 Oct 2012

When it comes to knitting, who knows better than our nan? If you get tangled in a ball of wool, she's always the first person you call to help you sort your cross stitch from your cable.

While recruiting for her fledgling online knitwear company, Katie Mowat swiftly realised that it was mainly older women, namely grannies, who were volunteering their services, and so Grannies Inc. was born. Since 2009 they have gone from strength to strength, and from one product (beanies), they now design and produce a whole range of knitwear. Her crack squad of 15 grannies will be contributing their 'purls' of wisdom and patterns to help the new knitting generation in this attractive book. With knitting patterns for snoods, legwarmers, slouch socks, laptop cases and beanies, you'll be cool and cosy in no time.

As the grannies say, 'May your bobbin always be full.'

4.0 out of 5 stars A modern Grannies guide! 15 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a new knitter and found that it covers all the basic things you need to know and enables you to make sense of pattern and to solve problems when they arise. Handy hints throughout, called 'Purls of Wisdom', are really good practical solutions!

5.0 out of 5 stars overwhelmed! 4 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
this book literally has everything! gives you a really comprehensive yet easily understandable way of learning to knit. I already knew how to do basic knitting and basically bought a book to learn how to cast on since I never thought it was important to learn that bit from my grandmother. I LOVE how much information it gives you about the different yarns and thickness and reading the labels and stuff I also love the website it recommends to join for patterns and a general chit chat, me and my sister are both on it and its amazing! The one thing I would say is that especially for people like me who struggle to implement information AFTER reading is that there is a LOT to read and remember, I do however think if I have the book open as I'm going I will find knitting remarkably easy! Hands down the best thing next to having your grandma teach you herself! love it
