All over the country, kids are picking up knitting needles and wildly colorful yarns to make really cool clothes and other fabulous stuff--from cozy chenille scarves to snuggly shawls, funky rag bags to furry tank tops, whimsical brimmed hats to classy cardigans. Whether on their own or together with friends in after-school clubs, recreation centers, or even yarn shops, these kids are discovering that knitting is more than learning basic stitches and following pattern directions.

Knitting is a way to get exactly what they want to own, and it is also a fun way to relax and hang out, a way to surprise a friend with a handmade sweet sixteen present, a way to discover the creative "me" in themselves.

Teen Knitting Club shows them how they can do it all--from learning the basics to forming knitting clubs of their own. Firsthand stories and tips from scores of teens both advise and encourage teens, while lively four-color photographs of their handiwork show what can be done with just a little practice.

Cool kids everywhere will be saying, "Move over, Grandma," and joining in this creative and rewarding pastime.

Even if you are a novice knitter you might want to check this one out. Full of yummy colors and textures, the pictures lead you through from simple projects to hard ones that include, scarves (of course!), bags, blankets, and ponchos for starters. There are huge projects and one day ones, so it is all dependent on your mood. Nothing will get you more excited to knit than this book!
