I consider myself an intermediate knitter and I think there is something for everyone in this book, whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced knitter. She encourages you to browse each chapter for explanations on various subjects, and I strongly recommend you do so, because the author really addresses almost everything you might think of about knitting.
It is quite a heavy book so you won't be able to carry it around easily, but this just means there is a lot of information inside. Think of it as a knitting bible and you get a sense of what it's in there.
the only way I can think of to make this book even better would be to add a DVD or CD-ROM to further explain some notions visually. However, as is, this book is a must-have for any knitter.
Such excellent value.
Arrived well packaged and earlier than exepected.
I started knitting a couple of years ago and now write a knitting blog and design patterns so I thought I was getting to grips with my subject.... until I got a copy of this book from a friend. Just looking at the size of it made me realise that my knowledge barely scratches the surface of all there is to know and TPoK is now my go-to for anything I want to check or learn about. It's absolutely ENORMOUS so despite having a hard copy on the shelf, I invested in the Kindle version a few months ago and it's been used so much already - it's easy to search and is in my pocket at all times on my phone or on my iPad/kindle, even when I don't have the huge hardback to hand. I have literally found everything I could dream of wanting to know in there. A few times I've guessed there must be a way of doing something, but didn't know the terminology which can make finding things a little harder, thankfully the way the book is organised (by topic) I can find what I'm looking for by reading through the relevant chapter, even if I don't know the correct terms.
It's too big to read cover-to-cover (for me, anyway) but is the perfect reference book.
