"Knitting Tips and Trade Secrets - expanded - Ingenious Techniques and Solutions for Hand and Machine Knitting and Crochet"; Pam Hoenig, editor; Taunton Press; 2006; 186 pages.

The book is a compilation of knitting tips sent in by US knitters. The chapters are:
Hand Knitting Techniques, Multicolor Knitting, Garment-Making Tips, Managing Your Knitting, Machine Knitting, Crochet Tips, Finishing and Caring for Your Project, Knitting Abbreviations.

I think this is an interesting book as knitting books go but I don't think I'd recommend running out and buying a copy straightaway. I couldn't sit and read it through but found I could only tolerate it in small doses. There are lots of good tips in it - some are very elementary and some are rather basic. I will admit to learning some new things but I don't think what I learned was worth the price of the book. The title is bit of a come-on.
