Speed Knitting: 24 Quick and Easy Projectsby Kris Percival
A great book for the beginning knitter! Speed Knitting is the book that inspired me to learn to knit. I didn't want to spend lots of time on a knitting project — I wanted something I knew I could finish right away so I could wear it or give it as a gift! The skinny scarf was my first project, and the ribby wrist-warmers were my second. As my confidence grew, I became interested in smaller needles and lighter-weight yarns, but I still return to this book to experiment with the stitch patterns it showcases.
