This is just the knitting book I was looking for!,
This review is from: Knitting in Plain English (Paperback)I had been searching high and low for a book that would give me the lowdown on "how to knit". While I learned the basics from a friend I needed the primer that would give me step by step instructions on what I had just learned, as well as give me the step by step instructions to take me to the next level.
When I needed a back up reference for how to do a 2 strand cast on (my instructions weren't great) Maggie's book was there to help me. When I wanted to know whether or not to block my finished items - Maggie's book came through.
Can't speak for long time knitters - but any beginner or intermediate should own this book! Start demystifying reading patters and stitches.
