Some interesting ideas of things to make, but for the real beginner...It just doesn't work (at least the knitting portion). I tried (and I'm not an idiot or uncoordinated) but trying to learn how to knit from just this book was a joke. Stuck the needles back in the ball of yarn and it is now a fireplace decoration!
