This is the perfect Christmas gift for a knitter. it would make a great stocking filler or a gift for someone who you like to buy a little something, priced at only £4.99 it is perfect for Secret Santa type ideas within crafting groups etc.
The book is jam packed full of hints, tips and inspirational quotes from the knitting world and beyond. There are quotes from books and films, from scientific literature, hints and tips from designers and fellow knitters and general good advice for projects and inspiration for new ideas.
This is the perfect gift idea for knitters or craft lovers of all ages. A small gift with huge thoughts and ideas.
If you belong to a knitting group, this is a good book to share snippets with when you next meet.
I like all the tips to make knitting that bit easier.
It's also good to hear that it has helped people who have been stressed for various reasons.
It is also useful to know there is an online knitting forum.
There is so much good sense in this book, and I would agree with the statement, "I knit because it's calming, or challenging".
Even Tracey Ullman says,"As I get older, I just prefer to knit". I can identify with that too!
The only thing this book doesn't do in detail is teach you HOW to knit. For this, though, all you need is a knitting colleague, friend, relation, r join a local knitting group where people are usually very kind.
It was my brother who taught me to knit many, many, many years ago!

a small book but full of hints and funny bits, just what you need when you need a pick me up, when you just found out you dropped a stitch way back and you've only just seen it. Read morePublished 5 days ago by angel
Great little book filled with advice and quotes on and from knitters. Take it to your knitting group or Knit and Natter and have a chuckle at some of the quotes.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
A bit repetitive (many pages about Stitchlinks, for example) and not what I would call funny, but a good stocking filler.Published 2 months ago by LaGrenouille
