The Knitting Experience Book 2:
The Purl Stitch by Sally Melville.

The Purl Stitch is the second in a five book conglomerate by Sally Melville. Sally is recognized as a foremost authority in the knitting world. This fact is proven in Book 1: The Knit Stitch and fortified

in The Purl Stitch.

This book is filled with beautiful photography and pictures about techniques. Again, this newest book is not just for beginning knitters, but should be a collectible in advanced knitter's libraries

also.

Sally addresses The Flow Experience and how knitters are blessed with their craft and don't have to deal with boredom. She mentions that it's like teaching an "old dog new tricks :)

This edition covers more advanced techniques that show reverse shaping, short rows, carrying the yarn around your neck for even tension, various buttonholes, assembly, and many other hints and tips. She covers many items that create successful garments.

The chapters are interspersed with pages on "Meditation" and ends with Sally's 10 Tricks. I love the picture of Sally playing the drums.

Of course, one of the biggest benefits of this book is the 25 projects. She offers guidance, rescue techniques and constant coaching.

Thanks, Sally, for this wonderful book. I, for one, am eagerly awaiting the third book in this series, which will be on color and photographed in Greece.

Respectfully submitted,

Carol Hurt
