I've always been fond of arts and crafts. I know how to knit, make scrapbooks, and decorative cards. But I've never heard of "spool knit" before. My friend mailed it to me for my birthday, and when I got it, I was really excited. The book taught you everything you needed to know about basic spoolknitting, and even came with a spool and crochet hook, plus string and beads. I got started immediately. But after a few minutes, I started to get frustrated. It was really hard, and the instructions were a bit confusing. But after a while, I got the hang of it. You just have to get used to how everything is worded, and you'll do perfectly fine. There were plenty of pictures to help me along the way, and pictures of beautiful bracelets, anklets, and rings to motivate me to finish the projects. I was really happy with what my first bracelet turned out to look like. I thought that this book was a great instruction booklet for teenage girls trying to have a little fun in their life!
