Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Knit: A Personal Handbook is a beautiful, user-friendly notebook/journal. Its flexible editorial approach and layout makes it possible to use it in multifaceted ways and, thus, appeal to a wide range of consumers. For example, a casual use can treat it as a general diary for daily notekeeping; a knitter who designs her own patterns can use it as a sketchbook in which to render her drawings; and a prolific knitter can use it as a record book for notes, photos, and yarn snips for works-in-progress and/or completed projects. Among the special features of Knit: A Personal Handbook are the following: photographs from STC's book Weekend Knitting; a zip-lock plastic tool/pencil pouch as well as a knitting needle gauge/ruler bound into the spiral binding; plenty of blank paper for knitters to write on; and, jam-packed resource sections that include month-by-month listing of national holidays and major knitting events and sheep and wool festivals; knitting needle inventory chart; favorite pattern log; guides to standard measurements as well as yarn weights, needle sizes, and gauges; guide to estimating yarn quantities needed for individual projects; personal yarn sources address directory; and a basic hat pattern for four sizes (baby through adult) and the three most common weights of yarn.

Synopsis:

A beautiful handbook of more than 100 blank pages waiting to be filled with notes, sketches, photos, yarn snips, fabric swatches, maybe even the occasional poem, Knit is the perfect companion for anyone committed to exploring their creativity or simply consolidating the myriad scraps of paper that currently make up their organizational system. <BR>Casual knitters can treat "Knit</I> as a general diary of everyday notes, while more prolific knitters and designers can use it as a place to sketch patterns and track progress on complex projects. For all levels of proficiency, the built-in needle gauge/ ruler, zip-shut pouch, pocketed dividers, and comprehensive reference sections are indispensable. <BR>Among the special reference materials are a needle inventory chart; a calendar of holidays and knitting events; fill-in directories for favorite yarn sources and patterns; yardage requirement charts; and a basic hat pattern sized from baby to adult. Knitters can even learn how to say yarn shop in more than twenty languages. <BR>This concealed wire-o journal is a companion piece to "Weekend Knitting</I> by the best-selling author Melanie Falick, and includes five full-color photographs from that book.
