Stitch 'N Bitch - The Knitter's Handbook
by Debbie Stoller
Written by Debbie Stoller, founder of the first Stitch 'n Bitch knitting group in New York City, Stitch 'N Bitch - The Knitters Handbook touches on every facet of knitting. Everything from a brief history of knitting to a fixing mistakes guide is discussed. There are 40 trendy patterns included, with color pictures depicting each project. The furry cat bed is especially fun -- a DailyKnitter.com feline is a bit possesive when it comes to sharing this soft pad with his sister.
Another practical portion of the book is the section on starting your own Stitch 'N Bitch knitting club. This is a great way to meet your fellow knitters, get knitting advice, and become inspired. Make sure to visit the "Local Knitting Clubs" section of the DailyKnitter.com for a listing of clubs, including Stitch 'N Bitch groups.
