Book Review ~ Cast On, Bind Off

OMG if you knit...whether you're a beginner or not...you need this book!  I give it 5 stars. It's like a casting on/binding off bible! Fantastic reference book because it shows you all the steps on how to cast on and bind off... 54 types of them to be exact!  There are fabulous pictures that show each and every step, along with additional notes throughout the book that will help you along.  The author also gives samples of what each cast on and bind off is good for - whether stretchy or tight. Pictures show what the edge looks like when finished so you can see what you should be getting as well.  It's a small book so you can fit it in with your knitting stuff and it take it with you if you wanted to.  I would recommend this to anyone who knits - it can be either a teacher of new cast-ons, or a reminder for those you've done before but maybe don't quite remember how it works.  A definite keeper!

Thank you to Netgalley.com and Storey Publishing for allowing me to review this book.
