New here with a question
Tue, 12-27-2005 - 12:05pm

I am new here and I have a question that I hope you ladies can help me with. I have wanted to learn how to knit for awhile, but I don't know anyone who knits to ask them to teach me. Can any of you ladies recommend a "Teach Yourself to Knit" type of book? I am close to a large variety of fabric/craft type stores, so it really is not that important who carries it.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me in this.

Hi and welcome to the world of knitting :)

I don't know of a particular book for learning to knit, but this is an amazing site:

There is a kit for knitters, "I Taught Myself Knitting" by Boye,
