Have you ever wondered how people create beautifully made garments out of nothing more than two knitting needles and a ball of wool? Hand knitted designer jumpers can cost a fortune, but apart from the addition of plenty of practice and a little imagination, there's nothing more to it beyond what you could do for yourself at home. Even if you've never knitted before in your life, "An Introduction to Knitting" will provide you with all the skills to get you started and before you know it you'll be well on your way to creating beautiful gifts for your friends and family to treasure. Knitting is also beginning to be recognised as a great form of relaxation as well as being an excellent outlet for creative talent. Even better it's an extremely portable occupation and your knitting can be carried around with you almost anywhere from your favourite armchair to the coffee shop or even to work for a little recreational knitting in your lunch break.
