I have always wanted to learn how to knit and so I got Knitting 101 By Carri Hammett from Quarto Knows. This book is written with the absolute beginner in mind, this book teaches all the basics for learning to knit with step-by-step instructions and photographs. Knitting skills are learned by working on projects, beginning with something very easy and getting progressively more difficult as the reader works through the book. New skills are explored in depth as they are introduced. The introductory section covers all the basics of knitting selecting yarn, needle types and sizes, other tools and accessories, knitting gauge, casting on, forming stitches, reading patterns making this the most comprehensive beginner's book available.
The accompanying online videos include a how-to guide illustrating all the knitting techniques presented in the book. The videos are very useful for those who learn better by seeing a step in action as opposed to still photographs.
My Opinion: I am so excited to start knitting now I just need to get to the store and buy my supplies. I think it is amazing to be able to make my own hat, scarf, cell phone cover and more and this book makes it easy to follow and tells me all I need to know to get started.
