For beginner Knitters..,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knitty Gritty: Knitting for the Absolute Beginner (Paperback)
I read the reviews before purchasing this book and it looked quite promising,however, I don't like it much at all. The beginners instructions are relatively clear but the UGLY practice projects! It surely might have been better to have bigger instruction photographs (even more detail) and then a pattern for a knitted square, to practice on. I can't imagine anyone wanting to wear any of the practice pieces (as suggested in the book). I think I'd sooner shoot myself at dawn than to wear any of the project pieces...I don't even feel that motivated to give any of them a try actually! I wouldn't recommend this book. I'm an absolute beginner and will not really enjoy learning from this book (which, incidentally, does not lie flat on a table surface)....better to look for a good c.d. with an instructor, or, like I'm gonna do, find a knitting class.
