In The Knitting Experience, "everything you need to know" combines with "everything you want to make". This primer is the closest thing to a knitting coach between two covers. First, in 'The Basics of Knitting', clear, step-by-step photographs help you get started. Next, in 'What You Need to Know Before You Begin a Project', you learn to make the choices that result in successful garments. Then the real fun begins! In the 6 chapters that follow, a progression of skills are taught, all with the same over-the-shoulder guidance. The patterns are presented in a uniquely accessible format; the photographs convince that these are projects to make and wear; and the coach is always there offering advice, anticipating difficulties, providing rescue techniques. To underscore it all, between the chapters are "meditations" on why we love to knit. Like knitters today, this book attends to the heart and mind as well as the hand and eye. Like knitting today, this book is personal, passionate, powerful exactly what the new knitter is looking for and irresistible to the already converted.
