A requirement on any knitters bookshelf Sep 4, 2008
Every knitter already knows this without even reading this review, but... this book is a must have for any knitters bookshelf. When you can't figure out how to do some technique, this book needs to be there for you!
Vogue Knitting Quick Reference Jan 13, 2008
This book was a huge help to me and I highly recommend it. I found it particularly good when I needed to increase or decrease from the left or right side. It gave me several methods and showed how each would look on my finished product. Even if you have used some of the techniques before, the clearly written descriptions and photos help remind you how to accomplish them again. I have purchased this book for my daughter and a friend because I found it so useful.
Great "Pocket" Reference Oct 12, 2007
This is a great reference to take with you anywhere. The examples are clear and consice, and if you've forgotten how to do something, you can handily turn the page and find it. A great reference for anyone, no matter the knitting experience, to keep in their knitting bag.
Good Basic Reference Aug 18, 2007
This book is a good reference for the basics. There are other books that will fit into your knitting bag that provide much more information. This one is a good basic "how-to" that has been invaluable to me as a novice knitter. I particularly like that it will lay flat when opened.
Again, this is a great basic reference book and it has been very useful to me. As my skills have improved, I have found other books that provide more information but I still come back to this one because of its easy-to-understand format.
Portable is right May 14, 2007
I bought this book to be a major reference book for my knitting library. The book's advantages are the sprial-binding, which allows it to stay open and easily accessed even while your hands are full with your knitting, and the book is thin and light, which is perfect for adding it to your knitting bag. A con is a lot of the more advanced techniques are taken out (compared to the complete Vogue Knitting Reference book). Since I plan on using this book mostly at home, I'm now kicking myself for not buying the more complete knitting reference book. I would suggest buying the other one if you plan on keeping this book at home and not carry it around in your knitting bag.
