for using up textiles although I would like to thank Storey Publishing for allowing me to read an ARC via Netgalley.Can I start by saying I would really love a copy of this book when it finally comes out and do hope to find myself a copy here in Australia as it s such a fantastic book.The original reason I wanted to read it was because I m looking for creative ways to use up a lot of the rag clothing I have piling up in my house that I feel too guilty to bin and know it s not good enough for a thrift shop I was going to try rag rugs until I saw this book It has blown me away with the talent and creativity throughout As I ve been describing it to my family as I rave about it to them it s not just a knitting book, not a mere craft book this is an amazing look into a very talented artists world and how she s found a wonderful way to turn rags into works of art that also happen to be rugs or wall hangings I m a novice knitter in a family of very crafty folks and have been wanting to get back into knitting for some time But I ve had no need as other members of my family keep churning out knitted or crocheted items for myself and my children I ve had nothing to do Thanks to this book, now I have It not only teaches you how to knit a rag rug but opens your eyes to the importance of colours and shading It gives you some great in depth details about the right clothing to use, how to prepare it, how to store it and how to plan out your work to make it easier to create and finish.From my notes as I read it, here is the knitty gritty details of my review Some knitting knowledge required to understand some of the things she s talking about I m a novice but from a family of knitters and so understood some of it but not all I almost felt like I needed to google to keep up and understand what she was saying when some of the patterns like intarsia where repeatedly mentioned Though will add that the pattern instructions are easy for someone of my basic level to understand and follow, though I do admit there are some places I d need a experienced knitter to watch and ensure I was doing it right.It might be one of those Nation language barriers, but I had a hard time with the fact knit was used when knitted was the correct term But I do know American English and Australian English aren t identical and so knit is acceptable in the country of publication.I didn t particularly like the double column layout where I d read down one side, end mid sentence and then have to scroll back to the top to continue Not a big thing and probably an issue reading it on a computer than it would be in a real book.The reasoning why the patterns and rugs are the way they are, the personal history of the author, the description of best theories put into practice, etc very interesting Helps give depth and meaning to the projects and helps you connect with the author and passion for creating such art yourself.Found The raw materials especially synthetics to avoid sections very useful I m wanting to use up the mountain of old material and rag clothes in my house The information provided here will save me a lot of time and errors.I found the instructions on how to cut the material into yarn a little confusing Not too sure if this is because I m of a visual person and if I saw someone actually do it and then read it, it would make sense or if it was just a little too complicated for my novice level.All in all though I love this book, want to own this book and really do hope to find myself a copy in the future so I can sit down with my knitting family and friends and share the beauty, talent and inspiration this book is filled with I can t wait to try some of the designs and hope to one day be good enough to do a nautilus I received this book for review from the publisher I have to say up front, that I do not like thick yarn, or big needles, so I was cautious when I first saw the book was about knitting rugs from strips of fabric However, my inner recycling fairy got the better of me, so I started leafing through the book and was soon drawn into reading it Still, I thought, maybe I will give it away after I am done reading it.I find the book very engagingly written It had me on the verge of going out and buying giant needles to give it a go myself As it so happens, since the arrival of the book, I have gotten an order in, for making hats from super bulky yarn I guess rugs from fabric will be the next logical step now I absolutely adore, that the book starts by saying how important it is to have space for your craft I cannot agree with that Even if you just have a tiny converted closet It makes such a difference, to have your materials organised and visible to you The second really interesting thing to me was the permission to kick out colours Just because you have a lot of one colour, doesn t mean you like it, or you have to use it Simply kick it to the curb If you have read any of my other reviews, you will know by now, that I like books, that teach you, rather than just give you patterns This book is again right down that alley It does have patterns in it, but it also gives you ALL the information you need, to come up with your own rug designs and be successful from the start if you read carefully, that is Don t like handmade rugs No problem I have gotten a bunch of inspiration for other projects and other materials out of this book already Seriously, you don t need to make rugs, just read through it and see where it takes you I find it is very inspiring, and has a lot of good insights and tips even for other crafts I can see some of the colour theory being applied to quilting, or maybe painting I also like that the rugs are made in bits and pieces no giant, heavy rug on your lap until it s done Just make a small swatch and move on, then assemble them in the end, or as you go Very portable that way Great craft to bring to the lake in summer.The best part is, that all the materials in the book are reclaimed I love it And the book explains how to cut different pieces of clothing to get the most out of them GREAT Not only T shirts Anything can be used I love that and find this also useful, if you are considering to do some hooked rugs See what I mean I love to look at books as resource and definitely read between the lines I would recommend for you not to dismiss a book, just because you don t knit, or you don t sew First off, you may get into it later on, second, most of these books have fantastic tips and tricks of the trade, that the authors arrived at, after years of trial and error and practicing their art A LOT of those can be utilized in daily life, even if you don t sew, or knit, or weave In short, I love the book and have changed my mind about giving it away It will stay on my shelf and I see myself using it frequently I recommend you consider it for your library as well. I read this book for NetGalley.I have been knitting for almost fifty years and have read many knitting books, magazines, articles, etc in my long knitting career It is rare to find such a unique, useful and creative form of knitting so well presented Ms Tiede s contribution to the knitting universe is quite original which is difficult to do in such an mature and well developed craft She truly brings a concept to a useful reality.The photography is lovely excellent craft photography makes a big difference in a knitting book The background information is clearly and accessibly written, with many tips and pointers along the way Instructions are clear and well written No confusion and very straightforward.I found the fact that Ms Tiede uses the craft of quilting as a guide and inspiration, but in the case of an item composed of pieces, quilting knowledge would be very useful.I really wish I could do some of this knitting, but I have space limitations so I have to stick with small items Still, this book inspired me to do some different things and see knitting is different ways I learned a lot from this book Thanks, Ms Tiede I have dabbled in crocheting with fabric s before but I never considered knitting with them, so when I had the chance to get this book from NetGalley in exchange for a review I immediately jumped on it Not only is this a visually attractive book, with beautiful color photographs, but the Rugs themselves look like little pieces of art to me I loved all the unique techniques, helpful and easy to follow instructions and interesting color combinations I have a pile of old t shirts and clothes that I will be happy to utilize for my next project This book really got my creative juices flowing and I can t wait to get started. Knitting Fabric Rugs by Karen Tiede is a free NetGalley ebook that I began reading during a lazy afternoon in a cabin outside of Yellowstone.This book is mostly devoted to rugs with a block stripe or a spiral pattern that involve garter stitch knitting and a significant amount of increased decreased stitches I expected patterns with fringe and wooliness, but the creativity and layout of how to accomplish a spiral pattern was an even exchange. I just learned to knit a few years ago and I am always looking for new and unique knitting projects This book is wonderful Tiede walks you step by step through process The patterns are simple The book is filled with excellent photos of the projects, so you can see them up close and in use I want to go out and make a rug. I don t even knit, but I do crochet other fiber arts, so I read this book to learn about the author s process And I was not disappointed I loved reading about how she began using recycled clothes fabric items to make her yarn , how she processes the fiber how she sorts them, how she uses them how she assembles the rugs.
