    My mom is an avid knitter (you should see the scarf, mittens, and ear warmer she made me for Christmas), and I have aspirations to learn someday, too. Knitting always seemed to be a complicated and hard hobby, but this book breaks it down step-by-step so that even someone like me can understand (and succeed)! Best of all, the book comes with all the supplies you need to get started. Included in this kit is a yarn needle, a crochet hook, two knitting needles, two buttons, and 200 yards of yarn (it should be enough to complete most, but not all, of the projects). First you need to wind the yarn into a ball, and then you need to tie your slipknot on your knitting needle. From there you will be instructed how to "cast on," knit and purl, and count your stitches to get the desired width. You're even instructed on how to buy more yarn, how to pick up a dropped stitch, what to do if you create too many stitches, how to sew seams, how to weave in your yarn, and how to block off your work. Whew…that's a lot to learn! You'll first create a practice piece until you feel comfortable with all the steps. Then you're ready to take a stab at making the six different projects outlined step-by-step in this guide. You can make a cell phone sock, a skinny scarf, a purse, a hat, a sunglass case, and a pocket purse. What a great way to learn a valuable skill! - elise

    I have to say, I've always found crocheting easier than knitting, but with the help of this kit, it was easy to learn how to knit trendy scarves, hats, belts, purses, and more! The kit contains both a large knitting loom (7 ¼") and a smaller double-sided knitting loom (4 ¾" x 2 ½"); 90 yards of high quality, brightly colored, thick yarn; a knitting hook; thread and needles; a tassel maker; and a small assortment of buttons and beads to decorate the final products. Although the project instructions are a bit lacking in that it focuses on how to use the provided materials to make one particular project (a knit hat), the skills you will learn can easily be expanded towards other projects of your choosing.

    Want to make some really fashionable jewelry? Then this kit is for you! There are over 500 beads, 6 colors of stretchy cord, and a knitting spool and crochet hook. The spool is unique in that it stands on end and the other end has 4 prongs in which to 'knit' or wrap your thread. You learn to add beads as you are wrapping on the spool and you learn how to add beads to crocheting also. With this you design your beautiful bracelets (for wrists or ankles), rings (for fingers or toes) and necklaces; even head bands if you so desire. The step by step instructions are easy to follow and the end results are just gorgeous! There are some very unique pieces to make and once you learn how to do this, you can create some original pieces also. ~ Phyllis
