Some very useful tips particularly for the experienced knitter. Many of the tips are offered by Americans so there is sometimes a need to work out what idiosyncratic terms mean.

I bought this book because it had machine knitting on the title. Very little information was given on machine knitting - disappointed!

HASH(0x951c4ce4) out of 5 stars Teaches this old dog new tricks 25 Oct. 2008
By Lee Rowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received this book last week as a birthday gift and was thrilled to see how good it is. I have been knitting for 40 years and still there were many things I learned just in my initial perusal of the book. This book is filled with excellent information from a wide varitey of sources and is written in easy to understand language. I'd recommend this book to any knitter who just wants to learn something new. Definite 5 stars in my opinion.

HASH(0x95671c18) out of 5 stars Tips and Tricks to Supercharge Your Knitting 23 Jan. 2009
By Charlene Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been a subscriber of Threads magazine beginning with Issue #1 and treasure my early issues that covered knitting, spinning, weaving and other textile arts.

Knitting Tips and Trade Secrets, Expanded: Ingenious Techniques and Solutions for Hand and Machine Knitting and Crochet is a compilation of the best tips and tricks from those issues of Threads magazine. The Expanded Edition, which contains more tips that the original edition (which is well thumbed through and resides in an easy to reach place on my bookshelf).

Containing more than 170 step-by-step drawings, if you knit or crochet and want to learn the "little things" that separate good work from great work, this is the book for you.

The chapters in this well designed and produced book include:

* Yarn
* Hand-Knitting Techniques
* Multicolor Knitting
* Garmentmaking Tips
* Managing Your Knitting
* Machine Knitting
* Crochet
* Finishing and Caring for Your Project
* Knitting abbreviations
* Index

Lots of helpful ideas and new twists on things you already know. Even though my knitting friends consider me an expert knitter, I will be getting ideas from this book for quite awhile!

By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been buying and reading knitting books of all types for over 40 years, and this has to be the best compendium of information that I have ever come across. If you only have one knitting information book in your library, it should be this one.
