    Radical Knitting Inspiration, Male Knit Artists

    Not your grandmother's knitting book. Artist/knitters featured in Gschwandtner's Knitknit Internet zine describe their art, backgrounds, inspirations, and present a pattern. Lots of great pictures of projects too large, expensive, complicated, or impractical to knit for personal use. (A 14 ft. fiberglass teddy bear. Miniature 1/12th" socks. A Lady GaGa Tube Dress. Really?)
    Some artists in this book inspired me so much that I researched them and found other books and patterns by them that I CAN knit. And, most importantly for me, in this process I learned new techniques and new ways to look at knitting. Auerbach's geodesic hat IS practical to knit. I found a similar pattern in DIY Knitty Gritty Knits: 25 Fun & Fabulous Projects. Gaughan's purse pattern was too complicated for me, however, her Lopi knitting book is one of the best sweater construction books I've used.
    Men who knit may be inspired by Dave Cole who shows knitting closely related to engineering (civil and electrical); Jim Drain, who has a BFA in sculpture,provides a Renaissance Festival gem: a metallic Sweatshirt Kimono; and David Gentzsch who provides a lesson in felting wool yarn
    This book is well worth reading for the stories of artists, particularly young and counter-culture artists who have found their voices in an unexpected form.
    After reading this book, I see knitting through new eyes.
