Everywhere you turn someone is trying to tell you that "knitting is cool again" but the fact is that knitting never really went out of style. We're not talking your grandma's knitted kitten sweaters here! Check out this wicked, wooly craft!

Klutz Knitting - Cast On, Cast Off

Klutz Knitting has the instructions and materials to take you from the most basic steps of knitting (holding the needles, winding the yarn into a ball) to more complicated elements like creating wooly hats and making stripes. It breaks each task down into its simplest elements and uses a ton of great illustrations to give you a visual nudge in the right direction. In fact, some of the directions actually get a little confusing because they break things down too much. Once you've got the basics down, Klutz shows you how to make projects like scarves, hats, purses and cell phone cases. Okay, the cell phone case is a little nerdy. With this kit, you'll soon be knitting like Madonna, Hilary Swank, Cameron Diaz, Winona Ryder, Rose McGowan, Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker and a ton of other celebs.

Klutz Knitting - Thumbs Up

  • Clear point-by-point instructions with accompanying illustrations.
  • Clear advice for buying more wool, needles and other supplies.
  • Tons of different projects to make.
  • Klutz Knitting - Thumbs Down

  • Directions can be so overly simple that it actually makes things more difficult to understand (that's what we call a paradox!).
  • Some of the suggested projects are super-nerdy (like the cell phone case and wallet).

    O my lord i like i dont even know how but this summer my grandma got a new printer and one day i was printing an essay on Albert Einstein and the paper got jammed. So i reached my hand in but i didnt know that the printer automatically pulls the paper back in so i got my hand stuck in the printer. I was crying and it was horrible. And then like (((((POOF)))) my crush, Jordan Barchett, just appears at the door and he comes in and sees me. The look on his face was so funny that i forgot my hand was in the printer. Finally my adopted father Cane Plemmar got me out and i now have the word "intelligence" tattooed on my hand. Ironic....lol
