#Review of Knockout Knits by Laura Nelkin

An abundance of knitted luxuries--summery lace shawls, warm and wooly hats, a trio of cool knitted bracelets, and stunning beaded gloves--designed to grow your skills.

Who doesn't love to knit accessories? They're fast, often require only a skein or two of yarn, and make amazingly versatile gifts for friends and family. Small knits are also the perfect way to try something new--an unusual stitch pattern, wild multi-colored yarn, or even a touch of sparkle. Laura Nelkin is well-known for designing these fun-to-knit little projects introducing her students and fans to advanced techniques with her signature "You can do it!" enthusiasm. In her first book, she share her 3 favorite types of knitting using wrapped stitches, lacework, and beads. Each chapter begins with a quick knitted cuff to lay the foundations, then gradually ramps up to more complicated designs. The result is an all-new collection of wearable, feminine knits with a slightly rustic aesthetic. Give them as gifts, stockpile for a chilly day, or dress up a casual outfit--these are knockout projects to enjoy knitting again and again.

Well although we did figure this one out.  This book is SO not for the begging Knitter.  It is for the knitter that knows their stuff.  And although that is the case.  We still had fun working on the patterns.  We ended up looking up a lot of stuff but if you keep with it you to will figure it out.  So take your time and follow along. This is a wonderful knitting book that will keep you busy for sometime.

I've never even tried knitting, so I guess this book isn't for me.
