How to knit guide: What this book is all about
Comments: This is one of the best reference books I've seen lately. Blessed by a spiral spine, this compact and neat book has a basic refresher on knitting and then goes through some stitches, and includes a few patterns to get you going in different weights and different types of yarn. It would be an ideal book to have beside you to occasionally consult about the basics. It's not as good with finishing as some others but still it's quite good with what it does, with clear charts and the samples lead you to think about trying more and different projects. It also has a clear glossary and index.
Buy/Borrow: I'm adding this to my wishlist.
