Tapas with Candace Eisner Strick
Sample little bites of the best knitting has to offer: try one fabulous cast-on that gives you instant k1, p1 set-up for ribbing, one unusual bind-off that requires no passing-over of stitches, one unusually beautiful stitch pattern, how to pick up perfectly, yarn-over increases that slant in both directions, a perfectly painless beginning for a circular shawl, a picot bind-off, and a few more delicious little tastes.
About 2 ounces of smooth, light-colored, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn and appropriately sized needles; one set double-pointed needles in same size.
Knitting Basics including sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles and crochet hooks of various sizes.
With worsted weight yarn, knit 2 swatches in stockinette stitch about 4" wide and 2" long. Keep both on stitch holders with yarn attached.
