Book Review - The Knitter's Dictionary: Knitting Know-How from A to Z by Kate Atherley

Knitting is like it's own unique language. There are tons of techniques, patterns, and abbreviations. This reference guide is a comprehensive resource for understanding the language. It can be used as a guide for experienced knitters or new learners. The dictionary has over 150 beautiful and easy to understand illustrations to help knitters. It includes information such as taking measurements, how to use and understanding gauging, and fabric and fiber care instructions. The information-packed guide is filled with tips and tricks to make knitting fun and enjoyable.

I recently started trying to knit and to be honest, I thought it was going to be easier. I have seen a few Youtube videos where they make it look so easy. My scarf I attempted to knit, didn't look very nice or usable. However, I found it very fun and relaxing to knit, at least, when I had an inkling on what I was doing. When I came across this book, I thought it would be a good resource. It was very informative, however, I found it to be a bit overwhelming especially for a new knitter like myself. Although, I am looking forward to trying the new techniques the books illustrates to hopefully become a better knitter.
