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).

    Oh! and if you did know about this, and sent an ##### to our school, then thank you for the support. :) We'll never be able to get over it, but we'll get by.  Thanks! :) R.I.P Mrs Maguire, gone but never forgotten...  :angel (Sorry for clogging up this debate, but the moral of the story is world wide, people are getting away with crimes like murder, and/or hurting somebody seriously...  This needs to be stopped... If the death penalty came back, I know for a fact it would scare people into doing the right thing, I don't know about America, but I'm sure it would in England.)
