Overview


Tracey Ullman has been known for almost 20 years as an award-winning comedian, actress, writer, and producer, well-loved for her eccentric and iconoclastic humor. She is also an avid knitter, and she brings the same freewheeling spirit to her most recent production, a book she created with knitwear designer and yarn-shop owner Mel Clark. Although she has been knitting since the age of four, Ullman was, she says “helpless to make anything other than long, holey scarves” until she met Clark, who taught her how to follow a pattern and knit for real.

Passionate and funny, serious and spirited, Knit 2 Together features lively lessons for beginners and more than 30 original designs for knitters of all abilities and stripes—from witches britches and house slippers to a saucy apron and a table skirt. Complete with sidebars and vibrant color photographs, the book also relates Ullman’s personal stories and reflections on her life in knitting. This one-of-a-kind brainchild of two perfectly matched creators—one a master of knitting, the other a master of wit—is sure to delight veteran and novice alike.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Tracy Ullman is renowned as an award-winning comedian, actress, singer, dancer, screenwriter, producer, author, and...knitter. In Knit 2 Together, she shares all the knitting skills she developed waiting for the next take. This book contains basic instructions for beginners and 30 designs for knitters of every skill level. The projects include witches britches, house slippers, an apron, and a table skirt. Tracy's personal stories are sprinkled throughout.
Publishers Weekly
The multitalented Ullman now graces audiences with another gift: a funny and accessible book on knitting, co-written with the owner of her local Santa Monica, Calif., yarn store. Ullman's been knitting for three years, and Clark, a New Zealander, is her knitting mentor. The duo shares more than 30 original designs, accompanied by Ullman's witticisms and Clark's trustworthy advice. The patterns are for chic, sometimes quirky items, such as a Lacy Hug-Me-Tight, a hybrid shrug/shawl with a pretty lace trim; and a Gym Slip Dress reminiscent of a high school uniform but with a panel of ruching at the hem, a lace panel at the waist and ribbing at the bodice. Although beginners may be skeptical of some of the more detailed creations, Ullman and Clark are nothing if not reassuring; says Clark, "There's no mystery to it. No one need feel intimidated." The patterns go beyond clothing for adults and kids; there's also a bath mat, photo frames, a table runner and other home accents. An addendum teaches special techniques, but novices will need the additional help of a primer to take on most of these patterns. Still, knitters sick of scarves and potholders will relish this refreshing and fun guide. Photos. (Oct.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
