My Little Knitting Book - A Quick Reference

by Joan Sheridan Hoover

Rating:  5 sheep (excellent)

 

How many times have you bought a new set of needles only to get home and realize that you already had a set in that size? Or the opposite problem - you are SURE you have a set of #4 dpns, but you get home and there are no 4s, just 5s and 6s? Well, here is the solution - MY LITTLE KNITTING BOOK - A Quick Reference compiled by Joan Sheridan Hoover. This may be the best $3.00 you will ever spend on knitting tackle. This book is only 3x5 inches - small enough to live in your purse or knitting bag without weighing you down.

My favorite features are the charts that allow you to keep an inventory of your needles - a page for DPNs, straight and circulars minimizes confusion. There is also a page for your crochet hooks. This little gem has already saved me an unnecessary needle purchase once.

Other very helpful information includes needle size conversion table, yardage estimates for sweaters of infant to large adult sizes and a foot length to shoe size list. It also has suggestions about building a library and stocking a knitting bag. Information about those mysterious care symbols that appear on ball bands and garments plus basic and more advanced tips round out the usefulness of this terrific little booklet. Ask your favorite LYS for it. You will be glad you did!

I give it five happy little sheep!
