XRX Books The Knitting Experience - Book 1: The Knit Stitch
The knitting revolution? What is revolutionary about knitting today is who is knitting (the new knitters are young women and retiring baby-boomers), what they are knitting (exciting yarns and projects), and most of all, why they are knitting (it feels good: the process, its creative and relaxing qualities, is at least as important to them as what they are knitting). What better time for a fresh approach to the learn-to-knit book? The Knitting Revolution focuses on the knit stitch with introductory chapters titled: The Basics of Knitting, What You Need to Know-Before You Begin a Project, and So You are Ready to Start Knitting. This primer is the closest thing between two covers to a knitting coach. Hundreds of clear, step-by-step photographs take you through each skill. Always the goal is to show you what you need to know when you need to know it. Choices are given, so each knitter can find the way that works best. Then the skills are put to work (and into a meaningful context) in the chapters projects. Loads of tips and special attention to details ensure that absolute beginners can complete any of the more-than-30 projects successfully; class, yet fun designs assure that they will want. Like knitting today, this book is personal, passionate, powerful - exactly what the new knitter is looking for and irresistible to the already converted. Softcover, 128 pages.
