I am much more experienced as a crocheter than as a knitter. I got interested in knitting a few years ago while there was a boom of knitting shows on public television. I have a lot of fun with the process but really don't have anyone to ask questions of. Most of the yarn stores in my area have closed and there are only the generic large craft stores available. The employees there, while very nice, don't seem to have the advanced skills necessary to give me answers to the issues that I have encountered in knitting. I generally have to try to search the internet to get my answers and that takes a lot of time and the answers are always clearly set forth. This book, "The Knitting Answer Book, 2nd Edition" has been a godsend of information and answers for me. My digital copy went away pretty quickly and I have been waiting impatiently for the paperback to arrive. I know that I will keep this book right next to me while knitting and I will use it daily.
From information about interchangeable needles (boy, I could have used that a couple of years ago and saved a lot of time and money) to types of cast-ons (I always forget which is best for what use) to adding beads and everything in-between is covered in this book. I also have a similar title in crochet and use it all the time and, as with that book, the illustrations are not fantastic, but they are good enough and the information is presented so well that I can get what I need quickly and efficiently from the book.
What is wonderful is that I no longer have the feeling that I am making my craft up as I got along, I can see that others have had similar issues and thankfully have solved them for me. I've put projects aside because I got stopped at a problem and could not figure my way out of it. I will certainly pick those projects back up and hopefully finish them in record time after having my problem solved.
I cannot recommend the book enough. While I am a beginner knitter, it seems like the information is useable certainly by individuals at my level to those who are advanced. I recommend it for the knitter or as a gift for anyone who knits.
