I am in love with this knitting book. The beginning has all of the basics for any beginning knitter and the instructions in this section include great illustrations to help you along. Once finished with this instuctional portion, the hats are ADORABLE! Creative and fun hats posed on the most adorable babies.
I've checked it out from the library FOUR TIMES now. I thought a few socks/hats during Christmas would be the gist of my knitting for the year, but this boosted my confidence and opened up ideas for more creative projects. I'm still a beginner, but I am really enjoying knitting and plan to fit in more time for it this year.
