From Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne of Modern Daily Knitting...there’s never been a how-to-knit book quite like this.
It’s little. Yet it's filled with their decades of experience.
Everything a new knitter needs to know, and nothing they don’t.
This is it. Skill Set gives beginners the keys to the knitting kingdom.
(Feedback from knitters who got an advance copy of the book...)
“What a lovely book. Simple but so effective! Not too much information, but not too little either. I wish that I had had a book like this when I was learning to knit.”
Nine concise lessons.
“Great! Sweet and to the point. I have a couple other beginner knitting books and they are so packed with information that they make it almost overwhelming. Also, I love how you give the beginner confidence to explore many more advanced techniques, as well as small swatches to practice these techniques as you go. I think the name Skill Set explains this perfectly!”
Dozens of illustrations.
“Fabulous! The pictures were very clear and helpful for a new knitter. It’s a great beginner book that easily fits into your project bag. Linda Jean has found this book very helpful to have on hand when she wasn’t with me and practicing her knitting.”
Tips, advice, and inspiration.
“Excellent compendium of knitting tips and tricks, aimed at the beginning knitter . . . a collection of instructions both ambitious and very useful.”
Full of encouragement and humor.
“I am very impressed with the way the book is written. I feel as though someone is present with me assisting me to learn. The graphics are excellent as well.”
“I really like the instruction to just practice each skill. I think we all get caught up in teaching knitting starting with the goal of making a scarf or dish cloth. For my niece, removing the goal of making something and focusing on just practicing knitting made all the difference. She relaxed and wasn’t critical of her results.”
