Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook Reviews
I bought this for my wife. For some reason she really wanted to learn how to knit. Anyways, she hasn't tried it even once but I was reading through this book and it seems awesome. Not only is it informational, but it is really entertaining. Who knows, maybe I'll give it a try.
I have experience crocheting and for the winter season decided to take up knitting. I ultimately wanted to make cable knit beanies to gift family members. I found this kindle book and thought I'd give it a try to get the basics.
I can't say enough about this book, and it's all good! First off, I received it this afternoon and haven't been able to put it down. It has everything you need and more. Everything from explaining knitting styles, to pictures, where and how to find local stitch and bitch groups, online resources, patterns...I could go on forever! There are even a few sewing patterns so you can whip up your own knitting tote and needle case. Also there is a knitting pattern by Diana Rupp, who is another fun chick with great books also.
...and It has been an absolute pleasure! Debbie Stoller reminds me of the best teachers in life: funny, smart, cool, and just has a gift for explaining things so you can easily understand and remember them. I know for sure it's an awesome book for beginers, since I was one! I got a very solid foundation of knowledge to work from, both from this book and the entire stitch n bitch series. Looking back, I thinks it's impressive how much she manages to teach you in just this first volume:
I have the hard copy of this book and love that I understand the directions for everything demonstrated. It is sort of a "knitting for dummies" book, and that would be me. I only knit sporadically, so often have to look things up when I start a new project. I have numerous hand-me-down books, but this is the one that shows me "how to" in a way I can understand.
Fun and instructional way to learn knitting. If you like whimsical out of the ordinary sarcasm, this book is for you.
