<p>I'm putting together a knitting basket for my oldest dd for Christmas.  Can anyone recommend a good book for beginners?  We have a couple local bookstores with a not so great selection of books (especially crafting ones) so I'll have to order online but I hate ordering when I can't see or know nothing about the book first.  She's 10 years old so I'll need something that will be easy to follow with lots of pictures if possible.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>I don't have any experience with kids knitting books... but I wanted to give you a link to a giveaway on a blog about one (I am not associated with this blog, just happen to see it this week).</p>

<p>There is a Klutz kit with a book, yarn and needles for some simple projects. The book is fairly good and useful. If you are already picking out yarn and needles, you probably don't need the entire kit.</p>

<p>That looks like a pretty good book.  I think it may end up being the one I get for her.  I do already have a collection of yarns and needles for her so I don't really need a whole kit.  I wish I would have seen that first! LOL </p>

<p>I flipped through <a href="http://www.novanatural.com/creativity/stitch/kids-knitting" target="_blank">this one</a> a few days ago and it was really great.  It goes through a few basics and then straight into easy projects for kids.  The photography was great in it too. </p>
