“You can knit almost anywhere. Toss yarn and needles in a bag, and you’re good to go!” Full-color photographs fill this accessible, attractively designed title. Explanations of needle sizes and yarn types accompany a photo-illustrated list of tools, and tips for reading patterns and yarn labels precede directions for holding needles and counting stitches. A “Starting Up” section shows some basic techniques. The book then gives step-by-step instructions for dying yarn and three knitting projects: “peek-a-boo mitts,” a scarf, and a bag that can be felted. The volume concludes by encouraging readers to try new projects and create their own designs. Front matter includes a note to adult helpers, and back matter contains a glossary, a link to publisher-selected Web sites, and an index.
