About the Author
Rebecca Danger of Bothell, Washington, is a knitting-pattern designer who believes knitting is a lifestyle, not just a hobby. She's got a great blog at www.rebeccadanger.typepad.com and a monster of a website at www.dangercrafts.com. She also feels quite proud that all of the knitting she did in high school and college has led to something more than just frowns and disgruntled looks from teachers.

If you're not a confident knitter yet, this is a good buy. The monsters make quick, great gifts for people of all ages and she's got wonderful photos and lists web pages that will help you learn standard knitting techniques. I suspect there's many a person in an office job that would enjoy having a monster to personalize their space. One in a care package to a college student would also be appreciated.
SO needless to say, I needed something to help me relieve my back/shoulder/neck pains after night after night of computer work. Thought what better way than to knit and crochet little monsters and animals? Browsed through books and thought this one might be nice for a "beginner" in the field of non-traditional knitting...all I know how to knit is scarves. So this book taught me knitting in the round, magic loop, knitting with double ended needles, and basically everything I could need to know to advance my skills.
There are key terms with a key in the back of the book should you ever feel lost as well as review on basics-everything from casting on to yarn overs and the works. It's a terrific book for teaching someone who wants to learn how to make creatures. This is a great beginner book that will help you to advance your skills so you can one day invent your own creatures of just hone skills you already have...and it will also provide hours upon hours of relaxation!
Making the monster was as fun as reading through the book. The instructions are so clear and presented in a linear fashion. None of this business where the pattern is off to the side and you have to connect the dots to get everything together. Things are line by line and I know even my daughter could follow one of these patterns. I really appreciate the clear, simple layout. I am relatively new to knitting and learned so much from this book--including how to magic loop.
My kids have moved on to mixing up the parts from all the monsters and it just so fun to see each monster emerge from my needles. Monsters make great gifts and everyone who sees them wants one. They are irresistible and you can knit them out of anything you have in your stash. I highly recommend this book to knitters of all levels. This books is filled with fun, rewarding projects that everyone will love.
