Overview

Women who love to knit are determined to find time to practice their craft, despite the many roles they fulfill throughout the day. They knit while traveling or commuting, while waiting for their kids, while socializing. Times like these call for projects that are easily transportable and have stitch patterns that are simple to memorize.
 
Véronik Avery has created 30 such projects for Knitting 24/7, a collection of stylish clothing and accessories that make use of those “in-between” times when we’re busy, yet our hands are free. Ranging from sweaters, scarves, and shrugs to hats and mitts, the projects represent both what women want to wear and what they actually have time to knit. The book’s gorgeous color photographs capture women in a range of settings—a morning at work, a dinner with friends, a relaxing weekend afternoon—evoking the time of day when each wardrobe item might be worn.
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Several of Avery's patterns (including the Salt Peanuts cardigan and the Lace Ribbon scarf) have achieved iconic status over the years, and this collection features the same classic, feminine qualities. The focus is on articles that can be knitted a few rows at a time, but you'd never know that from the finished work. There's plenty of variety in the patterns, which include everything from scarves, wraps, and sweaters to pillows and socks. Several of the patterns are also appropriate for novices looking to stretch beyond the basics.
