Rate Topic 0

3 posts in this topic

 Hello,
I recently got interested in joining a blind knitting and crocheting group, as well as weaving and spinning yarn.
Are there any gookd books for with sort of The complete Idiot's Guide or for morons or dummies language, that talk about how to make different kinds of knots needed to form loops, chainlinks, etc?
How many Stitch & (REMOVED) books are on here? Are they good? How helpful are they?
If you can give me more information, that would be great.

Lots of good stuff, and if you have sighted help, there are tons of images too you can have a friend describe. Look at "Knitting for Dummies" and "Crocheting For Dummies" for starters. I search for knitting, but then I sort the results either by copyright date or date added to site. Many books have patterns and are more advanced, but you  can have good luck by looking for words like "beginner" or "basic" in the title.  Nearly everything in the past three years is publisher quality.

I found the book Chicks with Sticks to be an excellant beginners book. They explain absolutely everything and even have crochet projects throughout the book that get harder as you progress. I used it as a reminder book but learned a lot I didn't even know I didn't know!
