Knitting Board Basics

I really love this book. It has some nice stitches with lots of pics. I wish they could have done a little more in the section "Creating patterns with colors". I would have liked more explanation with pics for the charted designs. There are lots of nice patterns for you to make. I think one mistake that is made all the time in patterens book is that they don't include a pattern for older children. Like 8-13 years old. In this book they don't have a pattern for anything in this age range only mittens. I would have liked to see a sweater at least. Other than that, it's great on all the basics with some pretty projects to go with it. The book delivers on the basics, it's in the name.

Knitting on the Noble Knitter…

This is a great loom.  I have been learning stitches and so far it’s been a lot of fun.  I find that knitting on a this loom is a different kind of experience when compared to knitting with needles.  I find that it’s a little slower but very enjoyable.  I love when the work starts to reveal itself from the bottom.
