      Product Description-Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook
 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.

This review is from: Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook (Paperback) Debbie Stoller outdid herself on this one! Not only is
this book fun to read, it has all the basics you will need to learn to knit and complete all the projects in the book, and it includes
ideas on how to branch out and learn more about knitting. The stories Stoller has included are inspiring, sentimental and a great
history lesson, it is just like reading the magazine edited by this wonderful author. The 40!! projects are fun, creative and a flash
of something new. There is something for everyone - beginning, intermediate and advanced to the most conservative knitters
and some for the flamboyant. If you are a new knitter the skills you will pick up and take away with you after reading and
practising on the projects will be valuable for everything you make in the future. You definately did a great job Stoller, I give my
props to you and cannot wait to see what the future will bring for knitting - here's hoping for more amazing books like this!

Indispensable for the Beginner!, May 18, 2004 By Knit Chick "knitchick66" (Chicago, IL United States)
This review is from: Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook (Paperback) I had a friend show me the basic knit and purl stitches
about a year ago -- she even cast on the stitches for me! So I consider this book to be my tutor on all things knitting. I picked it
up in a bookstore about three months ago and started my first project, the beautiful baby blanket pattern. Since then, I have
turned knitting into an enterprise -- I'm starting to sell some of my projects, I've started a knitting group at my neighborhood
coffee shop, and everyone I know is getting handmade gifts that I'm knitting!My assessment of this book is that it is ideal for the
beginner. The book very clearly takes you through all the stitches and techniques step by step, with helpful illustrations, and it
also provides lots of resources for yarn, patterns and supplies. And, beyond beginning, it makes a good reference when you're
working on other projects. If you're an experienced knitter, it's probably not the book for you, because many of the patterns ARE
basic (as noted by the reader...

An Almost Naughty Guide To The Fascinating World Of Knitting-Everything from Choosing Yarn To Choosing A Man!,
November 9, 2005 By Peter V. Cannice "Peter Vincent Cannice of Sc... (Scottsdale, Arizona USA)
   This review is from: Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook (Paperback) For an Italian guy who grew up surrounded by Mom
and Grandma knitting, reading Stitch 'N Bitch was totally interesting to read. I purchased 2 copies as gifts for the upcoming
holidays. Just for fun, I started to read the introduction of the book. Before I knew it, I found myself interested enough in it to
fisnish reading it in one sitting. It was too late to start wrapping, so I headed to bed with a sort of giggle in my voice. No-I didn't
feel like one of the girls. Instead, I found great information about everything from the newest types of knitting to ways in which
an individual could start a knitting group.I can tell you, very honestly, that it's not a typical book for a typical guy to read.
However, I DO feel that they should market this great little book to anyone who ever was surrounded or affected by knitting. For
anyone who is even thinking about started to knit, this book is intended for you. Knitting is, once again, becoming more popular
than ever...
