My mother taught me to knit while she was visiting me at Thanksgiving and so I am working on my very first item a scarf done in simple garter stitch with purple merino wool Since her visit I ve picked up a few books to help me starting with two beginner knitter books and then followed by this one which I found by browsing at the store I ve read the author s blog for the last month or so and find her writing uite entertaining so I figured I d give this a whirl This book is a great companion to the beginner how to or instruction manual books that I ve already got as it s almost all word and explains a lot of the whys and why nots than the details of the how There are a lot of entertaining comments especially with regards to the concept of yarn stashing which I m familiar with due to my uilting fabric stash and a lot of descriptions of what can happen or not depending on what choices you make as you knit There is also great information on knitting basic items like hats scarves and socks which I m finding really helpful as I look around this new hobby and am just starting to get the vocabulary and knowledge reuired to understand it all While this might not be so helpful for an experienced knitter I d say it s a great addition to a beginner knitter s library and I m looking forward to reading additional books by the author
