Although the title might imply that this is a book for beginning knitters, it should appeal to knitters on all skill levels. In a series of nine workshops, Bliss, a prolific British knitwear designer and author, covers all the major areas of knitting, starting with a beginner's workshop and progressing through simple stitch patterns, aran knitting, color work (Fair Isle and Intarsia), lace, entrelac, decorative details, knitwear design, and finishing. Each workshop includes step-by-step instructions, a stitch library, and several projects. Full-color illustrations abound. One caveat: Rowen yarns, not widely available locally in the United States, are specified for projects, so beginning knitters may need the assistance of a knowledgeble yarn shop owner or knitting friend in making substitutions. An excellent choice for public libraries.
