Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, best-selling author of At Knit’s End and celebrated blogger and humorist of the knitting world, is back! Funnier than ever, Pearl-McPhee continues her running dialogue with her knitting compatriots — cheering them on to ever-greater heights in the climb to make knitting universally recognized as THE peak life experience.

Both a celebration of knitting and a sourcebook for practical information, this book is a collection of useful advice and emotional support for the knitter. Pearl-McPhee examines essential truisms of knitting, side by side with tongue in-cheek warnings, realities, and fantasies about the act of knitting and the people who do it.

In chapters on everything from yarn needles, gauge, and knitting bag essentials to hats, socks, shawls, and sweaters, Pearl-McPhee unravels the mysteries of what it is that makes knitting click, from the inside out. She dares to question longstanding rules and uncover the true essence of what makes a hat a hat, a sock a sock, and so on. Insights into why certain techniques work encourage knitters to take control and knit in the way that works best for them. As she says, “There are no knitting police.”

The result is an illuminating, liberating (and hilarious!) look at knitting that will comfort the experienced knitter, surprise the mainstream one, and entice the beginner.

Hautement recommandé aux tricoteuses anglophones ! Ce livre est un mélange de "vécu" sur le mode comique dans lequel de nombreuses tricoteuses se reconnaîtront, et de tuyaux inattendus et très utiles pour que le tricot reste un loisir jubilatoire. Personnellement, je le garde à portée de main.

Ce livre mériterait vraiment une traduction pour celles (et ceux ) pas vraiment à l'aise en anglais ;personnellement je l'emporte en voyage !
Non seulement Stephanie donne les recettes géneriques des chaussettes (top down) ,moufles ,écharpes ,châles ,quelque soit votre choix de laine et grosseur d'aiguilles ,avec des tableaux de taille et des 'trucs' très utiles (par ex:pour un bonnet ,tricoter une longueur de main avant les diminutions),mais son ton alerte ,généreux donne vraiment envie de tricoter .Et il est très drôle ,même pour les non-tricoteurs !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Informative and entertaining 12 août 2016
Par Heidi W. - Publié sur

I bought this on a whim and am so glad I did. I earned a lot of helpful information. Did you know that the distance from one fingertip to another of a person's outstretched arms -wingspan - is the same as their height? Or that the length of a person's foot is the same as the distance from their elbow to their wrist? These tips can be very useful if knitting a surprise gift for someone (a shawl or socks). As useful as the information and patterns in the book were, that wasn't my favorite part. I really enjoyed her style of writing. Her turn of phrase was at times so amusing that I'd laugh out loud. This is just a word of warning in case you think you can sneak in a chapter or two when you wake up in the middle of the night. As quiet as you try to be, the bed shaking that results inevitably wakes up your husband. And as I live in California, he thinks it might be another earthquake. Highly recommend!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book!! 14 février 2011

I love this book!! I got it at my local library, and by the second chapter, I knew I had to own it!! I have been knitting most of my adult life--over 50 years--but I was never really 100% satisfied with what I made. The garments either came out too large, too small, or just plain not what I'd expected. No more. If you follow the author's advice, you will be able to knit hats, scarves, even sweaters and socks, without having to look up from your needles, trying to remember where your place was in the pattern. You won't always HAVE to use a pattern, but if you choose to, this book will make it easier for you, as well. The author provides you with a "recipe" that will be fine-tuned to the specific measurements you need for what you are making. Once you add color and/or texture, you will be able to make a truly unlimited wardrobe of knitted garments. She instructs by mixing humor in with her vast knowledge of knitting short-cuts, and even explains why the the dreaded "swatch," something I always considered a total waste of time for an "experienced" knitter, is the cornerstone of EVERY experienced knitter. Not only will I never make another garment without making that swatch first, but I'll also launder it " the manner the finished garment will be laundered." (The few times I HAD made a swatch in the past, I certainly hadn't wasted MORE time washing it! Big mistake! Huge!!) This is the one book that is a MUST if you want to learn how to do serious knitting. It is now my go-to book for all things to knit!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For any knitter, the best small book 10 octobre 2013

Loved this book! The writer is experienced, opinionated, humorous, and a skilled writer. She explains why a lot of the knitting "rules" aren't even necessary, and why the few she favors, are. She provides general, universally-applicable guidelines for creating a variety of knit garments and accessories, but no specific patterns for stitches, allowing the reader to apply favorite stitches and techniques to each guideline to create unique, custom-made items. The descriptions are easy to follow, and I haven't found any errors. I only wish she'd included, in the chapter on scarves and shawls, a few paragraphs on cowls ( or snoods, or whatever other erroneous names they're called these days. I'd like to see guidelines for both). I've read another of her books, which I also enjoyed, but the specific guidelines in Knitting Rules are so valuable. I want more, more!

This is actually the second time I've bought this book. I had purchased and read it earlier, but couldn't find it. Stephanie has a wonderfully dry, self-deprecating sense of humor. And, omigosh, her knitting skills are so inspiring. I have yet to achieve the status of Knitter (with a capital K), but I continue to be inspired to aim higher. This book has a LOT of helpful information on knitting items such as scarves, socks, sweaters and shawls. With her information, the reader is encouraged to use these as a stepping stone to making their own creations. And, it's done with entertaining humor.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great resource to keep in your knitting bag 15 janvier 2014

After struggling to learn how to knit socks and giving up in total frustration, I stumbled upon this treasure. I have now successfully knit one sock by following the instructions given in this book and have started the second one ! So far it is going great.The information and helpful hints throughout the book make it a valuable resource for any knitter. Newbies and veterans alike will want to keep this gem in their knitting bags. It covers the basics on how to knit socks,shawls,hats,scarfs and sweaters. She breaks each one down into easy to understand rules and guidelines. By following what she tells you to do, anyone can knit with confidence.
