"I bought this book, Knitting for the Absolute Beginner, for our
Granddaughter who is expecting her first child and who suddenly decided
to learn to knit. She is absolutely thrilled with the book, which gives
easy to understand instructions and clear pictures of how to start
knitting right through to shaping shoulders and necklines, joining
pieces together and a few patterns.
I would definitely recommend this book."
