Bob Jennings illustrates the techniques with energy and enthusiasm - showing how to create a scene, define detail and add texture. Practical step-by-step demonstrations illustrate how to build up a painting, and inspirational paintings show how the techniques can be adapted to create new pictures. 48pp. Like most of our stock, we have this book at a lower price in our shop premises if you would like to call in. 304206

Unless they have a friend or relative to teach them how to start, often would-be knitters turn to the so-called 'beginners patterns' but these can be confusing, difficult to follow, and more often than not written in 'knit' rather than English. This book will be a tried and tested guide for people at the very beginning of their knitting lives, looking for guidance and patterns for projects that they can use to make that first all-important step to 'Beyond the Scarf'. Contents include: Knitting Basics: Getting Started; Knitter's First Project: The Scarf; Workshops: Decreasing; Creating a Rib; Changing Colour; Increasing; Finishing; Knitting a Flower; Cable: Making a Cable; Making a Cable Bag; Eyelets and so on... 128pp. Like most of our stock, we have this book at a lower price in our shop premises if you would like to call in. 304198
