Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Knitters with a sense of humor and a delight in the whimsical will enjoy the imaginative designs in Knitting for Your Home. A knitwear designer and author known for her color work and lavish use of embellishment, Epstein is the Tracey Ullman of knitting--fluent in all knitting dialects and adding her quirky touch to each. This compendium of home-accessory designs employs a variety of knitting techniques from fair isle to intarsia to mosaic knitting to Aran to lace knitting. Each project is graded for knitters from beginning to expert and includes written instructions and full-color photos of the finished article. Beginning knitters may want to try the shingles (as in "building shingles") pillow made by knitting each shingle separately and then knitting them together from the bottom up in rows. Knitters with intermediate skills will delight in the sheep pillow made by sewing yards of scalloped edging to a round knit background and adding a whimsical knitted head. One project--an intricate intarsia sampler afghan--is described as "Advanced (suicidal)." Recommended for public libraries and textile collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
