This book is not a beginners how-to least when I was starting I was much more comfortable with a step-by-step row-by-row set of instructions and couldn't see the bigger picture. Once you've got the basics under your belt, however, this book has EZ's relaxed style and reassuring presence. She gives you 'general' directions for everything from socks to a shawl and afghan, then (for those of us who LIKE step by step directions) she gives concise steps. I actually found an older version of this book at a used book store. The new version (I couldn't keep from reading it at Borders, has all I mentioned PLUS an update from EZ. Not a 'first' book, but a cornerstone of my knitting library
