The videos are very helpful; but I can't find the "color insert", mentioned in nearly every project, containing photos of the finished items. I feel this is a grave omission. How can one decide which projects to make, or tell if it is being constructed correctly without the photos? The publisher should offer a free "upgrade" edition.

This really is a comprehensive and easy to read and understand guide to learning how to knit. And if you already know how to knit, this is wonderful for learning all those techniques for complicated stitches like wrap and turn, LLI’s etc. And it’s available on your kindle/tablet so no more carrying heavy books around.

This is easily the most useful knitting instruction book I've come across. I've been knitting for a while now, and this book is really helping me to fill in gaps in the knowledge I've already acquired. It's easy to find what I'm specifically looking for or to just browse an find new things I hadn't even thought to look for. And having it on my Kindle makes it easy to always have with me without having to carry an extra book around.

I started knitting when I was a teenager and then stopped and only just picked it back up after 20+ years. This Kindle version of the book helped me remember all I thought I forgot and guided me to surpass my previous experience. A well written guide for the beginner through intermediate knitters to understand or just search for particular hints or guidance.

Frequently in this book I run into the following:

"There is video content at this location that is not currently supported for your Kindle device. The caption for this content is displayed below."

What is then displayed may or may not be relevant to learning to knit. I can never know, unless I buy a non-Kindle version and compare the two. I feel very cheated. I feel I have really been taken for a DUMMY, and not in the kindest sense.
