A Knitter's Handbook Indeed!!,
This review is from: Stitch 'n Bitch Handbook: Instructions, Patterns, and Advice for a New Generation of Knitters (Paperback)
Fantastic Aladdin's Cave of top tips for new and experienced hand knitters.
Includes detailed explanations of basic and some advanced techniques. There is also great emphasis on trouble shooting where other books fail.
Yes, I agree that SOME of the projects are somewhat funky and young at heart, but hey I am twenty-something after all?
My only gripe is just as the other readers, the recommended yarns are not readily available here in the UK and maybe should include a section on choosing substitute yarns?
I'm hooked, I have even managed to get my boyfriend hooked on knitting!!
