Bought this many months ago because I have tried to knit and find it frustrating compared to crochet. Originally was disappointed with the book (rather booklet) expected it to teach me all the techniques rather than just the knit and purl stitch.
Have since found several free instruction videos on Youtube and am knooking along nicely. The knook hooks are bamboo, which I don't like because I find they feel like they are catching on the wool. I hope in the future to be able to buy aluminium hooks in other sizes, a smoother hook would make it easier.
