Knitting is hot, with 4 million newcomers in the last few years joining a core group of 38,000,000 knitters nationwide. And these are primarily young, creative, connected chicks with sticks who are coming together in living rooms, knitting cafes, and chic yarn stores, and making everything from funky hats to bikinis. In Stitch 'n Bitch, Debbie Stoller-founder of the first Stitch 'n Bitch knitting group in New York City-covers every aspect of knitting and the knitting-together lifestyle: the how-to, the when-to, the what-to, the why-to. Writing with wit and attitude (The Knitty-Gritty, Blocking for Blockheads), she explains the different types of needles and yarns (and sheep, too) and all the techniques from basic to fancy, knit to purl to cast-off. She also shares her special brand of corrective surgery for when things go wrong, and offers fun and informative sidebars on such topics as how to find the best yarn for less, how to make a buttonhole, knitting etiquette, and what tools to keep in your knitting bag. At the heart of the book are forty stylish patterns: Alien Scarf, Big Bad Baby Blanky, Mohair Hoodie, Kitty and Devil Hat, Cell Phone Cozy, and Wonder Woman Bikini. And for anyone interested: how to start a Stitch 'n Bitch group.… (más)

I enjoyed reading this book. Unlike other knitting books I bought this for the anecdotes, not the patterns. ( )

Stitch 'n bitch: the knitter's handbook by Debbie Stoller
Starts out with the whole family knitting overseas in Holland and the author just can't get it. Finally sinks in on her trek in a train across the US and everything comes together for her.
Talks of her works with organizing the group of knitters in NY.
Explanation of stitches is also included and funny sounding names for projects to do yourself.
Resources are also listed at the end. Fun book to listen to as the authors words are kinda down home and not foreign.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

Truthfully, I don't think that I will ever finish [b:Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook: Instructions, Patterns, and Advice for a New Generation of Knitters|57508|Stitch 'N Bitch The Knitter's Handbook Instructions, Patterns, and Advice for a New Generation of Knitters|Debbie Stoller|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1404581030s/57508.jpg|56028] as I am learning to knit. It just explains everything in such a straightforward way; I know I will be relying on it for a long time, as I stumble about trying to knit anything more complicated than a square, k4p4 washcloth.

Highly recommended for all who knit, who are learning how to knit, who would like to start knitting, and to keep on hand as a reference. ( )

Lots of info, lots of projects, lots of attitude. So it's a bit dated. I'm still glad to have it. ( )
