The kit from www.craftynana.com was lovely -excellent for a beginner, all you needed to add yourself is a yarn needle and a pair of scissors. The instruction book is step-by-step with photo’s of all the needle moves. This can be a tad frustrating if you’re used to reading usual knitting patterns, but actually to encourage folk into taking up the sport, I’d recommend it.
The booties do come up quite big, but the kit has enough for two pairs, so for my second I’m going to switch to 2mm needles rather than the 4mm supplied. So all in all, a good buy for someone who wants to have a go, with lovely organic soft cotton to boot…(poor pun, sorry x)
