Okey, Shannon. Knitgrrl.
Knitting has become a trendy thing to do. Instructions are provided here for 15 attractive projects, such as a faux-fur stole, a stripey scarf, an alpine headband, a messenger bag, text-messaging mittens, and a variety of hats and leg warmers. This small book is loaded with lots of basic information about various needles, reading patterns, knitting abbreviations, how to cast on and continue stitching, joining new yarn, and working with both circular and double-pointed needles, along with many important tips for working with various types of yarns. The photos help take the mystery out of knitting. Shannon Okey, a fiber artist, contributes to knitty.com, which is the longest-running free knitting magazine on the Internet.
