    My edition of the book had no images, and was not useful as a reference, August 10, 2011

    Kindle edition of this book does not have any images. I was confused that other reviewers mentioned seeing images. My edition of the book did not have any. Some instructional books can overcome this by extremely detailed explanations, which paint a good picture without images. This is not the case with this book.

    The new Guide to Knitting and Crochet starts with no introduction. The book immediately jumps into “Siberian cuffs”. It gives one paragraphs of instructions which are detailed enough to complete the project. However, since there is no introduction, general description or images you are not exactly sure what you will be getting as a final project.

    Most of the book continue in this vain: the instructions are about 1 paragraph long, only a few projects have titles that are descriptive such as “A Very elegant bag in French blue silk”. But this title is as much of the introduction or general idea of what the project is about is that you get. So I did not find it to be a good reference, as typically I have an idea in mind and want to find an explanation of the technique to help me accomplish my goal. This is not possible with this book.

    This book is more for knitting. I crochet so found no useful information. If you knit it may be worth looking at, it is free but no images.
