I received a lovely book to review last week from Quadrille Publishers. Anna Wilkinson is new girl on the block with her first publication of Learn to Knit, Love to Knit
The book is aimed at beginners and has some brilliant descriptions and diagrams relating to getting going with knitting and putting right any errors. It has lots of information about good practice when starting a project, e.g. tension squares and how to measure them.
It then moves onto more complicated projects including a gorgeous wintery tam and snood which introduces cabling.
Some of the later items in the book are a little more advanced than I think a true beginner would be comfortable with, e.g. fair isle and intarsia. However, the descriptions of how to embark on these techniques would be very useful to a knitter who is looking to spread their wings, so will ensure the book remains in use for the long term.
A little promo video featuring Anna is available for a further sneak peek into Learn to Knit, Love to Knit.
