Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is a richly illustrated collection of writings and historical source material touching on the craft of knitting. It includes a fascinating selection of paintings, old photographs, commercial art, and magazine and old pattern book covers depicting knitting through the ages, as well as an excellent selection of essays and stories relating to the craft. Here Elizabeth Zimmermann tells us how she first learned to knit, Michael Gregni recounts his misadventures in learning the craft in order to reproduce his favorite but worn-out old Norwegian Setesdal sweater, and Suzyn Jackson talks of mastering knitting on the New York City subway during rush hour. A gallery of knitted pieces demonstrates the art knitting of Debbie New and Karen Searle and the fine craftsmanship of Solveig Hisdal. Recommended for public libraries.
