Choices, choices...


I do love print books, but there is nothing quite so satisfying as being able to dip into an E-book while you're away from the house. Just being able to quickly check some detail or other or search for a stitch for that perfect yarn you have just found is invaluable.

So when we were planning our new book, Reversible Knitting Stitches, we wanted to make sure that it could be used both when you're at home and on the road too! You can dip in and out of an E-book, jump ahead, go back to where you just were or read something in depth. It just makes life so lovely and simple.

Initially, we were thinking of it being read on a tablet or iPad, but increasingly I have been finding I like to use my phone instead. I don't usually carry my iPad around and my phone is always there, ready to check out a stitch chart or a line-by-line instruction. I had thought it would be too small to be practical, but instead have found that I really like the way you can zoom in to see small details.


Of course, tablets and phones are great when you are mobile, but I tend to use my computer more when I am at home so we have formatted the E-book to look good on a computer screen too.

The great thing about reading the book in this way is that you can elect to view just a single page or two pages at a time so it feels like a print book. You may need to just check your settings for this. In Acrobat Reader, set the Page View to "Two Page View". and you will then be able to scroll through the E-book much as you would a print book. 

You can also use the "Navigation" menu to show the bookmarks list for the different Chapters and Sections, or view the thumbnail images to help locate stitches you'd like to investigate.

Thanks for all the great messages about the new book — it's so good to hear that everyone is as enthusiastic as we are ourselves!

Happy Reversible Knitting!

Moira and Anna
