I am a relatively new knitter and I have found this book to be invaluable. The author puts me in mind of the renowned knitting guru Elizabeth Zimmerman, in that she encourages the reader to learn techniques and adapt these as needed rather than simply following patterns. I found myself understanding knitting in a way which I thought I never would. The author makes the subject very accessible, and I have found myself reading the book straight through and then referring back to it as problems with my knitting have occurred. A fabulous book, well worth the money and written with a great sense of humour.

If you're a knitter and a reader then you will understand my dilemma. I love them both but, not having two pairs of hands, find it difficult to balance both interests. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee has come to the rescue with a series of books about knitting. Now, there are lots of other books about knitting on the market. There are pattern books, books of techniques and how-to books galore but they tend to be books you use rather than books you read. Knitting Rules, on the other hand, is the kind of book you read with joy from beginning to end. In it, Stephanie shares her love of knitting in a friendly, down-to-earth tone that often had me giggling. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced knitter - I am in the middle - you'll find something in this book to interest and inspire you. I found the perfect solution to Christmas 2012 and I'm looking forward to visiting with Stephanie again soon for more ideas.

As all Stephanie's writings, this book is hilarious and informative. This is the first book she's written which really focuses on *technique* though so if that doesn't float your boat it might not be what you're after.

She manages to explain things in a concise, funny and accessible manner and I find it an invaluable recipe book for patterns and ideas. When I was learning sock knitting a while ago I used her pick-n-mix method to find the best way of doing things for me and thanks to this book I now have my own default sock pattern which is easily jazzed up with different stitch patterns and yarns.

I can't wait for the next one, Stephanie!

I'd read a couple of her books before but this is the first that I'd actually say I'm likely to return to again and again.

Reading this book has liberated me from the guilt of having five huges plastic boxes crammed full of sock yarn (sock yarn isn't 'stash' yarn apparently which means unlimited quantities should be purchased in case I can't afford it at some time), plus several cardboard boxes full of yarn that I couldn't live without at the time and just need because it's necessary that it's in my possession. Until reading this book, I thought I was alone and 'odd' but thanks to the Author, the realisation has struck me that this is extremely ordinary and acceptable behaviour and to be otherwise would be flying in the face of a Knitter's nature and duty to sheep and alpacas everywhere.

In a world of political correctness and stuffy purists, this lady with her reasonable insanity and logical wisdom understands Us Who Knit. When I've stopped crying with laughter, all those technical tips are going into a notebook so they can be found when needed. What a great book!

This is the only ever knitting book that I read from front to back all the way through without puting it down. It's funny, helpful and clear. The instructions cover almost anything you could think of and a few you wouldn't. Good for a beginner, intermediate (like myself or even a more advancced knitter would get something out of it.
