Hi Knitters! :waving:
I’m writing a knitting book about [I]‘Designing your own projects using 100% cotton yarn’.[/I] It will include basic design principles (and patterns) for a minimum of 12 projects illustrating those principles. THE GOAL: You will quickly and easily design and knit your own projects! Wow!
The book is in the initial layout and format stage. Now is the best time to ask knitters to express their opinion about “the ideal knitting book”!
1)What would cause you to pass by a book on the shelf?
2)When you browse knitting books, what is it about them that would make you put it back on the shelf?
3)What would make the book [I]least useful[/I] to you?
4) What do most knitting books lack?
You’re not limited to the above questions. Please rant about anything you’d like. And pet peeves are welcome here! Just tell me what you don’t like!
And, on the flip side of that coin:
1)What makes a knitting book ideal for you?
2)What is it about your favorite knitting books that makes your fingers itch to grab the yarn and needles and add one more piece to your “on the needles” list!
3)ANYTHING you love, please tell me.
As far as the book itself:
1)Would you prefer a printed version, or
2)Would you prefer an e-book, or disk, at about half the price?
3)Would you like to have both disk and print version available?
If you prefer a ‘printed’ version, how would you like it to look?
- Snappy cover
- Spiral binding
- Large type style
Please feel free to talk about any of the issues mentioned, or any of your own. I want to thank each of you for taking the time to share your opinions! My goal is to create the most useful book I can! Feedback from you is so important because knitters know what’s best!
Thanks in advance,
