Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Workshop Book based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I know this book will become one of my most used reference books when it comes to knitting, fitting and modifications of patterns. E.Z. not only was extremely knowledgeable about all things knitty but she is very clear about her explinations. Something not everyone can do.
Do you want to knit? Are you a new knitter? Then go and buy this book.The friend who showed me how to cast on and knit recommended it, so I dutifully purchased it. Then I knit an actual sweater. You can't beat that. The only downside--and this applies to all of EZ's (Elizabeth Zimmermann) books--is that she has a kind of old-fashioned, northwoods esthetic. You can ignore that if it doesn't suit you, because her comments are always valuable. She will cure you of submissive obedience to printed patterns. And she's fun to read.
