Editorial Reviews

Knitter's Review
The images of the actual garments themselves are exquisite . . . The patterns are beautiful.
Library Journal
Imagine browsing through the nation's top yarn shops and chatting with owners about the projects that most appeal to their customers, how they got into the yarn business, and what they have learned about knitting through the years. Then imagine including everything you've learned along with 33 original patterns from 33 local yarn shops in a richly illustrated pattern compendium. The result would be Knitter's Stash. Featured here are stores throughout the country from Bette Bornside's shop in New Orleans to My Yarn Shop in Coos Bay to Countrywool in Hudson, NY, to Rumpelstiltskin in Sacramento. And for the knitter who likes to travel and what knitter doesn't? there is a comprehensive directory of yarn stores all over the United States. Highly recommended for all knitting collections.

    Coffee table book - not!

    This book and the pictures make it appear to be a coffee table book. But you won't be able to leave it alone. The patterns are beautiful and the stories, a perk. I've been knitting for almost thirty years, and I've completed more projects out of this book since purchasing it one year ago than any other in my knitting library. I would recommend it to beginners and experienced knitters alike.

    A must-buy!

    This book is a wonderful addition to any knitters library. In the way of patterns, it has something for everyone: sweaters for adults and kids, accessories, gifts, and some very charming toys.These are quality designs, ranging from classic to whimsy. New knitters and seasoned ones will all find many projects that they will want to dive into. Best of all are the stories about the people in the yarn retailing business: learn how they got started, and take an armchair tour of their shops. There is also a national yarn shop directory for those of us who get out of armchair-travel mode and on the road. Copy those pages and stick them in your car's glove box, you never know when you'll need them! One last nice feature: A listing of yarns in gauge order in the back, for those of us yarn collectors ( we know you are out there) who have a stash of yarn and need to pick a project. A must-buy!
