It’s a definitive publishing brand now, growing from workshops and knitting groups to a great (and funky) series called Stitch ’n Bitch. Once again, author-editor Stoller and her contributing designers hit the knitting needles with élan and nerve, basing the 41 patterns on the assumption that readers have mastered knitting and purling, and increasing and decreasing. This newest volume is definitely geared to the experienced stitcher, although brave knitters will be able to follow the up-front directions and illustrations for cables, bobbles, laces, intarsia, steeks, and, yes, even how to design it yourself. Instructions are detailed, with much colloquial language; the latter actual begins with chapter titles (for instance, Lace: The Final Frontier) and continues throughout. The designs, unfortunately, are not labeled in terms of ease/difficulty; plus many only capture one or two sizes. Yet the how-to’s are rich, featuring each contributor’s story as well as prefatory prose about the item’s creation. With abundant photographs, illustrations, and charts, knitters can choose among a sea-and-surf sweater, a fertility blanket, and a Coco Chanel–like cardigan with sequins. --Barbara Jacobs

So for those that aren't easily offended, I urge you to check out Superstar Knitting. Not only is it hilarious, but this book (like all of Debbie's other books) is fantastic. She presents instructions in the simplest way possible, and the illustrations are really helpful. I recommend this book to anyone looking to go beyond the basics. When I was first teaching myself to knit, I kept the original S'nB in my knitting bag for reference, but found that it didn't have the advanced stitch help I needed as I tackled more advanced techniques. I'd replace it with this one but it's so full of great patterns that it's too heavy for my bag (note, that is NOT a complaint)!
Great guided instructions, illustrations, and cute patterns to help you practice. A word about the patterns: while they're much better/more current than the original Stitch'n'Bitch, some are still kinda eh to me. Also, it's very heavy on socks and beaded knitting, which don't really interest me. Still, most are cute and absolutely worth making.
The real reason to buy this, though, are the invaluable instructions. Well worth it.
