The fall chill is setting in, and Christmas is just around the corner -- so now’s the time to curl up in front of the fireplace (or maybe just the TV) with a cup of hot chocolate, a pair of knitting needles, and a big ball of yarn. Knitting, after all, is cool again -- it’s not just for old ladies anymore.

Once you’ve learned the basics, and you’ve mastered basic, boring scarves (every member of my family and every one of my friends now owns at least one hand-knit scarf), you’re ready to go out on a limb a bit. In The Joy of Knitting Companion, Myers, a yarn store owner who’s been knitting since she was eight, gives all kinds of insight into the craft. In the pages of this book, you’ll find tips on selecting the perfect yarn for a project, basic patterns for hats, socks, scarves, mittens, and bags, and a few refreshers of the basics. You’ll also learn how to read charts and make your projects even more personal -- by designing your own patterns.

The Joy of Knitting Companion (which was written as a kind of workbook to go along with Myers’ book, The Joy of Knitting -- though it works just fine on its own) is chock-full of instructions for new stitches and patterns and suggestions that will even make you excited to knit boring old scarves again. Myers also includes graphs for designing your own patterns and pages for filling in information about various yarns, the projects you’ve completed, and more.

This book is definitely a must-have for any knitter -- every page is full of information that you’ll want to refer to over and over again.
