Readers Digest-Complete guide to needlework
I just found this book again in an old box. I was surprised at how much information is in here! Does anyone else have it? Do you like it? I can't wait to delve into it and try new patterns and stitches!

I've heard very good things about it, hang onto it and refer often.

I bought this massive book on needlework (I think the same book) at a second-hand store for cheap, I agree with above, keep it!!!

I have one, just lent it to a friend cause she was wanting to learn crochet and is left handed (apparently it has left handed instructions..)

I stole mine from my mom...

I don't have it but I have heard good things about it. Apparently it has helped lots of successful knitters get started.

It does have left and right handed knitting/crochet. It has instructions for how to make all types of sleeves- even an aran sweater! It has a pretty much everything! Pages of how to make certain stitch types and how to adjust sizing, really everything that one needs to know at sometime. It even says why knitting should have a crochet hook! :) The only problem with it is that is smells old! LOL!

It's been on my wish list too. I just bought it for cheap off eBay.
