For all the beginners out there, I went out and purchased a book, well actually more a calendar than anything, called 365 stitches a year. Basically a perpetual calendar, as well as a nice pat encyclopedia. This book (calendar?) helps me practice. I try to knit the stitch of the day, every day, doesn’t always help, but I’ve found that in doing so, it helps answer a lot of questions that I have. I recommend this book (calendar?) to anybody who knows the basics.
