I got The Knitting Answer Book the other day and I am so happy I did! Slowly but surely I am reading all the questions and answers, which have helped ease some fears, answered those pesky questions I did not want to waste others' time with, and gave me great ideas to improve my knitting skills.
Addressing questions related to such topics as needle size and type, yarns, reading patterns, casting on and binding off, Margaret Radcliffe provides a wealth of information which can certainly come in handy when you are stuck in a pattern, trying to make a decision regarding type of needle to use for a certain project, or how to best store your supplies.
As I hone my knitting skills, having a small, portable companion by my side is very convenient. Here you will find 386 pages with diagrams to walk you through times when you are stuck or unsure. It's pocket size is perfect for my knitting bag. When I cannot have a breathing knitting expert sitting next to me, when reaching the internet is not an option or doable, when I 'must know now', this book is the solution.
Whether you quilt, knit, crochet, embroider, paint, scrapbook, etc... enjoy today!
