I got a new book called "Seven Things that can Make or Break a Sweater: Techniques and Tips for Hand Knitters" by Margaret Fisher.
So I am well into the book...and I can recommend it to anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their hand knitted sweaters. Good news: all of the techniques are covered by 7 sweater patterns included in the back of the book. That way, knitters can be working on a project that requires these techniques as they move through the book.
Even myself, I am always on the lookout for techniques to improve my knitting. The author is a MASTER KNITTER...and let me tell you...she is very down-to-earth in her book. Not high-sounding, not looking down her nose at the rest of us!
I'll never ever have a MASTER KNITTER certificate, but that's okay...
I just want to be happy with my own knitted garments. That's what she says is the purpose of her book, and the classes she has taught for years.
Very practical, useful book. Great photography. Very logically presented.
I like her, and I like the book. I've already learned a few things!
Anyways, I got mine at Amazon. Click HERE to see/buy the book at Amazon.
And this is a good BOOK REVIEW I found.
