5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dr. S. Tollerton on 10 Sept. 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is full of snippets from knitters of all walks of life. Some were very good - notably some from Montse Stanley - but many were pretty tame. I have given my copy of this book to a friend who is a complete beginner, and I reckon she will learn a fair bit from it.

A book of useful tricks, and a bootie pattern you will love 15 Feb. 2001
By Joanna Daneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I find that I refer to this book rather often. It's hard to classify the tips and secrets in here; this is mainly a compilation of good knitting information that just doesn't fit into a single subject. For example, there is a pattern for a baby bootie that doesn't slip. I must have made dozens of these and every time the grateful parent comes back and says "Wow! Those were the only baby socks that didn't fly off Junior's feet when he kicked."
There's plenty of information on finishing, always a sore subject. These tips were gathered by Taunton Press, the publishers of Threads Magazine. Threads used to print articles about knitting, but in the mid-90's they switched the magazine to a (very excellent) all-sewing format. They preserved their knitting articles and these tips in a series of books on knitting, which was a great idea. These knitting articles were each unique and very useful.
I have several of the Taunton books, but by far this is the one I use the most. This is a very handy reference for "stuff" you'd like to know about knitting. And I would give it 5 stars just for the bootie pattern alone!

Some helpful tips among many irrelevant ones 28 Dec. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I learned some good tips from this book, but find I wish I had spent my money elsewhere. I look forward to matching the slants of my increases to the slants of my decreases, but do I really need to know 5 different ways to wind a ball of yarn? Or all and sundry's ideas for handy yarn containers (from diaper-wipe canisters to plastic baggies)? This is mostly a compendium of readers' helpful hints, and has no center of gravity to it. I probably won't use 90 percent of it.

A Wealth of Knitting Tidbits! 19 Jun. 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really like this little gem. I first sat down and read it straight through and have found myself referring to it often. Lots of tried and true hints and little shortcuts for all levels of knitters.
I don't belong to a knitting circle, but I would assume having this little book loaded with "secrets" is a bit like being in one; hearing all sorts of bits and pieces of what works!

A useful tool for knitters. 24 Jan. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book provides useful hints for knitters. It is far more than just a collection of ways to cast on and cast off but includes many submissions worked out by knitters themselves. Some of my favorites were a quick bootie pattern, hints for finishing garments, and suggestions on how to properly wind yarn into balls. ( I never knew I shouldn't wind too tight that I could inadvertently stretch the yarn). Its a book to pick up as a text to solve specific problems and also the kind of book that ends up next to the knitting chair or in the bathroom for reading snippets on knitting

not for machine knitters 1 Aug. 2006
By Tulugaq - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is really not worth it for machine knitters. (I hand knit, too, and I'm still not convinced it's worth owning a copy!) There are only a few machine knitting tips in the entire book, and most of them are either basics covered in any knitting machine's owner's manual or tips for highly specialized items that wouldn't be useful unless you had the pattern in front of you.
