Reviews - What do customers think about The Knitting Experience: Book 1: The Knit Stitch (The Knitting Experience)?

A great Knitting Experience  May 21, 2008
I got this book for one pattern, the knitted coat, however I was pleased to find so many patterns that I know I can use. The patterns are not so difficult you would not start them, however they do keep your interest...I started the coat the day I received the book...strongly recommend.
Best in Series  Apr 4, 2008
I own all three of Sally Melville's Knitting Experience books and this is by far my favorite. There just isn't another book out there that I'm aware of with so many great designs that require only a knit stitch...not a purl to be seen! That's what makes it stand out to me. I've never quite understood why some people are so reluctant to make the jump to purling, but if you've taught knitting I'm sure you've run into a few. The other two books have plenty of Sally's ingenious designs, tips & humor, as well as XRX's very readable layout (definitely try an XRX book if you're new to reading knitting patterns!) and great photography, I just think this one is more of an accomplishment...a design/teaching challenge met and surpassed.
The Knit Stitch  Mar 24, 2008
Along with Book 2, The Purl Stitch, this book is very helpful for beginning knitters. The books arrived promptly from the seller in excellent condition.
book taught me how to knit  Mar 2, 2008
I've tried knitting before my sister in law gave me this book and never could understand what the author was telling me to do. This book taught me how to knit with confidence. Besides the fact that the clothing is lovely, the motivation the author gives is wonderful. Totally recommend it.
A knitter's library must-have  Dec 7, 2007
Along with Zimmerman's Knitting Without Tears just a delightful basic book to own. I've not tried most of the projects but love reading about them. I know several people that have made at least one project from this book, and a group at my LYS made the Einstein jacket last year. I plan to make it with a friend this winter. We are both 'swatching' now. I made the basic 'Shape it! Scarf" this past spring but the best little tip was a mere side note: to press heavily if using a ribbon yarn. I was using a ribbon yarn and would have never pressed it heavily or otherwise. Tips like this make the book a gem to own. And her personality comes out in the book. A class with Sally Melville is just as delightful.
I borrowed this book from the public library in three different systems for the last few years. Cannot imagine what took me so long to buy it. Get this book. And Part 3: Color.
