Review

"This book is wonderful for both beginner knitters who want to improve their skills, and also not-so-beginner knitters who want to indulge in Vickie's amazing design sensibility!"
-The Crochet Dude

" Designed for knitters who want to learn new techniques, but lead lives where time is at a premium."
-Diane Gilleland, CraftyPod

"...fast, challenging knits that will get you pushing your knitting knowledge to the next level."
-The Sweatshop of Love Knitting Blog

"There comes a time in every knitter's life when she ought to step it up a bit... Vickie Howell has taken it upon herself to help teach the masses of knitters stuck in the 'easy' skill level patterns to move on up the scale."
-About.com

I had to write because I disagree with the negative review. I first saw this book at the
library and decided to purchase it for myself because it offers just what the title suggests:
a way to step up your knitting to the next level. There are small projects to practice a new
skill, challenge yourself and have a nice gift to give to a friend. Knitting should be fun
and this book helps you remember why you wanted to learn the craft in the first place. Now
I am going to give it to a friend who seems to be stuck in a knitting rut. I am no kid; I am 70
years old and have been knitting for many years but I like to look for the fun and Vickie Howell
knows how to help us have fun with our knitting!

hope this is helpful. I normally like my knitting pattern books in actual book form but this one has good pictures with it; so it kind of makes up for it.

I bought this because it seemed like a good stepping stone from being a beginner. The reason the rating is so low is because the pictures are so small that I can't even tell what it is supposed to be showing. If I had seen that before I bought it, I wouldn't have.

If you're brand new to knitting, maybe not a bad book. I didn't see a lot in here that is very inspiring, but the kindle edition was $2 so I'm not complaining. There's a pattern or 2 in here that I would consider adding to my to do list. Maybe.....

This book provided information on the all the basics, or at least everything I could think of. I wish there was more on breast feeding multiples, maybe with pictures as well. I like that it was easy to read and it didn't seem to push any specific point of view on the reader. It is a good overview for any new mom or veteran mom who needs a refresher on the process of pregnancy, birth, and after care.

I was extremely disappointed with this book. It received rave reviews from freeknitting.com, so I preordered it from amazon before publication and before I could examine some of the pages. I'm an experienced knitter who enjoys making worthwhile and less-than-simple projects. This book is full of patterns for silly, unattractive, goofy items that are a waste of time and effort to knit.

I am such a fan of Vickie Howell, I love her show and she makes knitting so easy and fun. I plan on making everything in her book. Her instructions are easy to follow and her projects are useful. Recommend this book to anyone wanting to knit. It is great therapy.

This book is okay for most knitters. I will probably try to do some things in it. I would have liked more beginner and easy projects in it since I am a new knitter and teaching myself how to knit. It has some nice patterns and I like that I could put it on my Kindle Fire to use on the go.
