Description

Located in Newtown, Connecticut, THREADS is the leading source for garment sewing. Designed to help sewers of all skill levels, the pages of Threads provide the right tools to create functional and fashionable clothing to last a lifetime.

I bought this book specifically to sew knit fabrics, like yoga pants.

This book is a collection of articles from past issues of Threads magazine but that is a good thing because Threads articles are always packed with information, good tips, excellent diagrams and photography and I always feel as though I just learned something. In this book there are a variety of projects all of which offer sewers the opportunity to expand skills, be more creative, and learn.

Hand-Knitting Techniques From Threads MagazineThis is a gem. Anyone who is interested in knitting particularly sweaters is a must have. It breaks down how to contruct sweaters of all types and even offer reference materials for further reading. This is one of the best.

Threads Magazine, a premier sewing magazine, used to print fine articles about knitting. Then in the early 90's they decided to go "all-sewing, all the time" and not publish articles on knitting. Meanwhile, they had a large collection of very excellent articles written with their signature hand drawn illustrations. Fortunately, Taunton Press, publisher of Threads has seen fit to reprint these articles in several books.
This book has the article on bead knitting, which has been responsible for getting MANY people addicted to this unusual form of knitting (and a vintage art, at that.) The article on fitting larger people is a classic, and relies on the Threads know-how on fitting. Some of the fashions now look a bit 80's, but even so, this is an excellent reference and well worth adding to the knitting library.

This jewel should be cast, page by page, in transparent laminate to preserve for lifetimes. I've had this book since it was published, having re-learned from other books how to purl and knit and sort of remembered from watching German mom how to hold needles in hands with some elegance. This book has taught me how to KNIT SOCKS (galore), how to make edges look finished instead of ragged, knitting with either beads or sequins, several varieties of button holes,full-figure sizing and knitting,and now,15 years later, how to make not only fingered gloves(!!) but even thumb-no-fingers hand warmers that are all the rage today (2006)! I was so disappointed when Threads magazine went to all-sewing instead of both arts; it had been the BEST magazine for non-kitschy knitters! The illustrations in this collection of articles from their 1980s issues are large, clear, and easily scanned into computer for emailing to friends to show them how to give you their leg and foot measurements for socks, for example. Nothing skimpy, here! My Tibetan Buddhist teacher would say this book "essentializes" knitting knowledge, which is another way of saying it's a "diamond path" to knitting; cuts through all the mysterious stuff and gets right to the nuts and bolts of the good stuff you can do that is grown-up and good-looking. There is no other book like this on the market that I've been able to find. Enjoy!
