Overrated and mind-numbing...boring with a capital B...The kind of book that crushes the desire to knit right out of a newbie...

There are way too many other choices out there for beginning knitters. This is the kind of book that has beginners knitting garter stitch scarves for a year because they are too timid to try a real project. Forget it.

Pick up a copy of Stitch-and-Bitch, visit the knittinghelp website, join some online knitting groups, and Google the abbreviations and terms that confuse y...more

I learned scads of new knitting techniques in this book, as well as getting some ideas for patterns I'd like to try. My favorite pattern in this useful tome is for "muffatees", which Peter Rabbit's mother used to knit to make ends meet, but I plan to make for myself and friends. These are wristwarmers that end in all-important ruffles peeking out of jacket sleeves. Be still, my heart.

*OK, I've started my muffatees finally. The double-pointed needles are not as tricky as I feared!

Sudah baca sekilas soalnya ini jenis buku yang tidak bisa dibaca langsung habis :D. Sekilas kubandingkan dengan Crochet Patterns for Dummies, aku lebih suka buku Crochet-nya. Hasil-hasilnya lebih menarik hati untuk langsung mempraktekkannya. Sementara buku ini diawali banyak teori, nggak langsung ada contoh kasus yang menarik untuk dipraktekkan. Halah, kasus!

All the "for Dummies" books have one thing in common - they make it all simple to understand, and that's what this book does. Following and understanding the abbrieviated language of knitting has really frustrated me, so this book is helping.
