New Book Provides Savvy Knitting Techniques for Those on the Move 

Knit 1 for the Road by Margaret Nock is an easy-to-follow knitting guide that makes on the go knitting easy 

Knit 1 for the Road, a new how-to book written by long-time knitter Margaret Nock, finally gives the solution to transporting the craft of knitting for all busy lifestyles. 

Complete with pictures and quick, easy-to-learn patterns, Nock covers skill levels ranging from beginners to intermediate knitters in her guidebook. According to Nock, Knit 1 for the Road is all about being portable and fun. The author shares her appreciation for knitting as she encourages others to knit, share, and go.

Nock`s Knit 1 for the Road is far from intimidating. All patterns are prepared with the same 8.0 size needle with room to make notes. The author gives tips and resources to keep knitters motivated while also providing embellishment options for more experienced knitters. In addition, she also provides yarn information to ensure that the knitter finds the best match for the chosen patterns. 

While Nock takes her knitting everywhere (on the plane, in the car and to the park), she includes in her book what was absent in other knitting books. Thinking of the times she herself had wished that she had brought along her knitting supplies on various outings, Nock sought to provide a resource to others for on the go knitting so that they too would not miss out on the overlooked opportunities. 

For anyone who wishes to give or receive the ultimate guide to knitting, Knit 1 for the Road is an easy-to-maneuver reference book that can be taken anywhere. This savoir-faire is also a wonderful gift option for those seeking to embrace the art form of knitting.
