Don't know the first thing about knitting? All it takes is a bit of moxie, yarn, a pair of needles - and Getting Started Knitting, of course! Author Jennifer Worick takes readers through the process of knitting, from casting on to binding off a successful beginning project. Getting Started Knitting is even more basic than other books, making no assumptions and taking great pains to avoid overwhelming knitting newbies with too much information too soon. Instead, this book touches on all the basics with the warm encouragement of a friend and focuses on getting you comfortable with the rhythm of the basic stitches.
Jennifer Worick is a New York Times best-selling author on a variety of dating, pop culture and crafty topics. Her favourite knitting project was a shawl that took one week and one skein to knit, although she's most proud of the shawl-collared cabled cardigan that nearly killed her. In her previous life she was a publishing executive. Jennifer lives in Seattle, Washington.
