Vickie Howell’s new book Knit Aid: A Learn It, Fix It, Finish It Guide for Knitters on the Go is now available! This spiral bound compact book is your one-stop knitting reference that no knitter should do without. You know when you are in a project and you just need to just remember how to “yarn over purlwise” or remember what the knitting abbreviation “psso” means? This book is a lifesaver because you can easily look up knitting terms. I also love all the reference material for yarn weight, standard garment sizing, and the attached gauge ruler with knitting needle sizing. Plus if you forget how to cast on, don’t worry. Vickie gives you five ways to cast on to refresh your memory or teach you a better method. There are also illustrated stitch guides on how to do basic knitting stitches. And for when you’ve made a mistake, Vickie’s there to show you how to fix them, such as fixing a dropped stitch or “unknitting” where you can knit backwards and fix a small mistake. This book is the perfect size to tote around in your knitting bag and the spiral bound book is so useful because it can lay flat as you work on your stitches. You’ll find yourself going back to this book again and again for all your knitting projects over the years. Hey, it’s also perfect for a Mother’s Day gift for moms who knit!

    Well, maybe not, but since knitting pretty much sustains me and helps to keep me sane, then maybe so. I often run into problems with my knitting while out and about, dropping kids off to school, picking kids up from school, watching kids at swimming lessons, TeeBall games, etc. I am rarely with a knitter friend or anyone who can help me out of a knitting mess – hey, my 8-year old just figured out the knit stitch for goodness sake! So, having this book with me would be a fabulous help.

    man, I need this book. It’s all about the mistakes and then casting around all over the nets looking for help.
