The Knitting Experience

Book I: The Knit Stitch by Sally Melville.

This book has a subtitle which says "inspiration & instruction". How true...because this book is NOT just for new knitters. Sally has taken the basic knit stitch and designed patterns you have to see or execute to appreciate.

Her inspiration goads the knitter to try and go out on your own. Bend the rules, and knit outside the box.

I'm certain that most knitters, of any level, can identify with her forward that talks about "how knitting can change your life". The meditations that she's included will be a delight to knitters of all ages.

There are 25 projects in the book for men, women and children and it includes many size ranges. It includes the skills you may need, and the details that are important. She constantly is coaching and guiding you through.... and even provides rescue techniques should you need them.

A great many seasoned knitters have marveled over the Einstein Jacket. You won't believe how Sally took garter stitch and architecturally designed this jacket. There's also a Baby Einstein. The Shape-It scarf is a beautiful pattern and so much fun to make.

Her choice of colors and yarn are beautifully reflected in the amazing photography.

The Knit Stitch is the first of a series of 5 books. The second book, The Purl Stitch, recently became available. The last three books planned for her series will focus on: color, texture and design.

I project that every passionate knitter will want all 5 in the series.

I have taken my 2 books to Office Depot and had them spiral bound for only $1.50 each. That way they lie open while you're working :)
