5.0 out of 5 stars For perfect knitting....., 23 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: Compendium of Knitting Techniques (Paperback)
Had this book on loan from my library for so long thought it was time to buy it. Have had a large number of 'knitting techniques' and 'how to knit' books from the library so I knew this was the one for me.
Have returned to knitting after a break of many years and this book is invaluable.
If you are a complete novice this book teaches you all the stitches you need in an easy to follow and well pictured way. Even an experienced knitter will find this useful for trying out new stitches or just needing an alternative way to do something (i.e grafting, etc).
I mainly knit smaller things such as socks and toys and these are forever needing unusual stitch combinations and I return to this book often for reference.
The book doesn't include projects or patterns (except for fairisle and the like) but thats not really what the book is for.

I entirely agree with what you say, even down to borrowing several knitting books from the library trying to find one that explained clearly how to make a slip knot, amongst other things. Somehow, diagrams don't seem to be enough. I looked on You Tube and despite several people showing how to cast on I just couldn't get it. Funnily enough, when the penny did drop, I suddenly remembered other things; it jogged my memory from the 70's when my mum taught me the basics, but which I haven't used again till now. This book has been a real boon and I'm now raring to go with more complicated stuff and expand my knowledge. Whereas 40 years ago in my early teens, I wasn't that interested, now I'm hooked!
