a friend of mine got an e-mail offering this deluxe master knitting kit, The Smart Knitter's Complete Guide to Advanced Knitting. There's some info about it here:
has anyone out there purchased it or know anything about it? she asked my opinion and not really sure what to tell her!

Sean, you can find all of that stuff online, why would you want to pay $47.00 to download it? Or, you could pay $19 something for a 'Knitting for Dummies' book, and get all that information. Looks to me as if the author put the program together, then found a copywriter to promote it.
I'd be interested in finding out if anyone here has bought it, to see if it's worth while.

i agree with you myself, but i am a more advanced knitter than she (largely thanks to KH actually and I did pimp out KH to her, mentioning the videos.) I think she's the kind of person that would like to have everything in one spot for her like that. It sounds almost scammish to me, so I was curious if anyone else tried it.

A while back I signed up for whatever the free stuff was that they offered, and it was a waste of time. Even though I had only been knitting for a few months, the free stuff was complete crap. If that's anything to go by, I would highly reccomend avoiding that offer.

I don't have this, but it just looks like a cheap scam. I don't trust emails I get for so called great offers, they're usually a rip off. I wouldn't waste money on this. I agree with something like the Knitting for Dummies. Or have your friend check out the local library.

I somehow ended up on her email list So I periodically get emails touting discounts and other things like that. Honestly I think that you would be better off getting your friend a "how to knit" type of book, a link to here, yarn, needles and easy access to you. Cheaper and better.:hug:

I found that website and thought wow free. Then at the end you have to pay. I also think it is a scam. I have also seen the one for crochet. She hits all the bases. Like everyone has said give her a good book and some yarn and needles and let her learn from KH and you.

she is already a kntiter and has the access to me and KH, i think she's just the kind of person that would like a big resource in front of her. she is quite good, but sometimes lacks confidence in taking on new skills and projects, like we all did at one point. i will tell her about the knitting for dummies too!
thanks everyone! :)
