Countdown To Christmas: Show Me How

knittingquilting1Has their ever been something you would love to learn how to do? For me, it is knitting and quilting.  When I heard about these Show Me How books, I knew I had to get my hands on them.  Now, these books are geared for the 8 – 12 year old age group.  However, I have seen adult how to books that I can’t figure out.  Instead, I decided to check out the kids books.

I give Show Me How: Knitting and Show Me How:  Quilting two thumbs up.  Each set comes with a story about Mary Ruth and how her grandmother teaches her how to both quilt and knit.  Both stories are good reads (and my 4 year old loves them).  There is also another book that shows you how to do each step to quilt and knit.  I found the directions and illustrations very easy to do and follow.  For me, I love how they assume you don’t know anything and talk at that level (which is exactly what I needed!)  From the book alone, I learned how to read the labeling on yarn and how it tells you on the yarn what type of needle you should be using with it.  They start you with easy projects, so that you or your kids don’t get frustrated.

I have no problems admiting that it will take me using these books to learn how to both knit and quilt.  I would recommend them to anyone who wants to learn how to do either!
