After receiving many of her knitted cardigans and jumpers for my toddler, I wanted to learn how to knit too. Her being 3 hours away, I needed to get myself up to speed another way and decided on a knitting book. Yes, there are endless free YouTube videos out there but I wanted something I could scribble in and refer back to. I found this very user friendly as it took you through the basics in an approachable way, with handy hints and tips scattered throughout the projects. The photos were mostly pretty clear although I did go on YouTube a couple of times to confirm I had got a stitch right as it is handy to see it actually being done. It took me a little over 6 months to get through them all, knitting roughly every other day for an hour or so.
