I agree with others, buy just as you need things. You'll be fine without the booklet, and you won't need most of the things in the kit, except needles of course, for a while yet. Plus, scrap yarn makes great stitch holders, better than the metal ones because it's flexible. You might prefer an electronic row counter, different stitch markers, different needles, etc. If knitting becomes a passion you'll probably spend plenty on supplies, so it's worth getting the ones that you want.

I've bought two of them at different points, and got frustrated and threw everything away twice. I couldn't figure it out from the illustrations in the books. It wasn't until I found the videos here, and just bought needles and yarn, that I got it.

Kudos to you though if you can use it!
