Stitch 'n Bitch Superstar Knitting : Go Beyond the Basics Paperback
Knitters: It's time to take it to the next level. And who better than Debbie Stoller to show you how. The expert knitter and gifted, edgy author who introduced knitting to a new generation with her "New York Times" best seller, "Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitters Handbook", now shows her readers how to do more - lots more. "Stitch 'N Bitch: Extreme" is the only knitter's handbook to teach the full array of advanced knitting techniques and skills, such as double-knitting, knitting lace, complicated colour work, beading, and more.
Writing with the clarity that makes her such an effective teacher, and the attitude that got her dubbed 'knitting superstar', Stoller explains how to 'knit by the numbers', get creative with stripes, embellish with crochet, beading, and I-cords; how to make cable patterns; and how to use colour forms.
There's also a whole section on DIY - which gives a tutorial on creating your own knitting patterns.

Review by nancyewhite
I love Stoller's books, They are written and illustrated in ways that make sense to me and, as a primarily self-taught knitter, that's been hugely helpful. In this one she covers knitting with color, cabling and lace using the same witty conversational tone she's used in all of her Stitch 'N Bitch books. She manages to demystify the techniques and lingo enough to convince me that I want to try all of these techniques and that, furthermore, I'll be succesful at doing so.
