The Manly Art of Knitting
The Manly Art of Knitting is back in print, after an original debut in 1972. Designed to highlight the fun flexibility of the knitting craft, this charming introduction clarifies basic terms and stitches, and offers projects, troubleshooting, and some surprising proposed uses of knitting. Using shovel handles for needles? It's certainly one way to do it, according to David Fougner. Originally geared towards men and those too rough and tumble to normally come into contact with textile crafts, the book holds up as a fun primer for knit-shy readers of all types.
