The fall chill is setting in, and Christmas is just around the corner -- so now's the time to curl up in front of the fireplace (or maybe just the TV) with a cup of hot chocolate, a pair of knitting needles, and a big ball of yarn. Knitting, after all, is cool again -- it's not just for old ladies anymore.
Once you've learned the basics, and you've mastered basic, boring scarves (every member of my family and every one of my friends now owns at least one hand-knit scarf), you're ready to go out on a limb a bit. In The Joy of Knitting Companion, Myers, a yarn store owner who's been knitting since she was eight, gives all kinds of insight into the craft. In the pages of this book, you'll find tips on selecting the perfect yarn for a project, basic patterns for hats, socks, scarves, mittens, and bags, and a few refreshers of the basics. You'll also learn how to read charts and make your projects even more personal -- by designing your own patterns.
The Joy of Knitting Companion is chock-full of instructions for new stitches and patterns and suggestions that will even make you excited to knit boring old scarves again. Myers also includes graphs for designing your own patterns and pages for filling in information about various yarns, the projects you've completed, and more.
This book is definitely a must-have for any knitter -- every page is full of information that you'll want to refer to over and over again.

What do you do when you've learned the basic skills of knitting -- casting on & off, knitting, purling -- and are looking to expand your skills and become a better knitter? The answer is simple: buy this book. Lisa Myers, owner of Rosie's Yarn Cellar in Philadelphia, has been in the yarn business for years and is an experienced writer and teacher. She shares her hard-earned knowledge in this book, designed to take novice knitters to the next level (although even experienced knitters can learn a lot and will appreciate the charts and technical info). She gives practical advice for picking yarns, selecting stitch patterns, and incorporating design techniques for a variety of garments: mittens, hats, socks, and so on. There are helpful illustrations and plenty of tables and other information to help you make sense of it all. Don't spend the rest of your life blindly following other people's patterns: become a thinking knitter and make the knitted garments YOU want to make.
