Lainey writes: My Norwegian grandmother taught me to knit when I was 5 years old. She was a perfectionist and only allowed progression from one step to the other when the previous step had been perfected! I knit spasmodically during my teens and used my skills in college and have been knitting ever since then. Several people have asked me to teach them to knit and using this book would be very beneficial to me.

rsuziq writes: I used to knit. I remember enjoying that time. I have been thinking lately about picking up the habit again. Maybe I'll stop biting my nails so badly if I keep them busy knitting? LOL My sister crochets and I would like to offer a little competition. Although she's pretty good......

Ursi writes: Knitting to me seems quite daunting. I know people who just seem to take off with it, but I have not really gotten quite that far. Perhaps a good book with excellent visuals and easy explanations may be just what I'm in need of. I'll keep my fingers crossed! Maybe I'll be a winner!

Torked writes: I have never learned to Knit, my Aunt could do both and said your yarn can go twice as far with knitting than with crochet. I would love to win the knitting book, to be able to learn! Thank you for the opportunity!

Thanks so much!

Iliana writes: I love that this one came up. I was talking with a friend yesterday and she thought I could knit. She was all ready to have a party to learn how. I hated to burst her bubble and tell her no. So if I win this we will get together and learn how to knit together.

Blufox20 writes: I can crochet small projects (mostly blankets and amigurumi), but I've been intimidated by knitting. I'm not sure why. If this book can explain it to me then I'm ready! Let the knitting begin!

Mutti writes: I learned to knit when I was in 9th grade - about 60 years ago :-) Was not to good at knitting socks, though. I'm not bad at crocheting but wood like to start knitting again. I'm sure that this book would send me on the right path to get me going.

Kimber59 writes: I took a class last spring but then moving to a new home got in the way of practicing. Learning to knit was on my summer bucket to do list. But hey, I live in Arizona and it's technically still summer here! LOL! This book may be the motivation I need.

jennieMB writes: I still can't knit, crochet, or make origami so I could use this one. I need the simple instructions with lots of pictures to follow along and maybe I can finally start making simple things like mitts, tuques, scarves, and socks.
