This book sits next to my Elizabeth Zimmermann books and is used for reference just as often!

Even if you read it and decide that combination knitting isn't for you, the tips & techniques in it are well worth the read.

Very informative

I, too, "invented" combination knitting as a "child". I was astonished to find that others knitted differently. Only recently have I found that there are others who knit as I do. As an adult who loves lace knitting, socks, and a myriad of other things, I was frustrated with directional slants, short rows, and other techniques that are different than Western knitting. Annie's book was very helpful in explaining how I could improve my knitting.
an excellent book on various knitting techniques that make the knitting police wag their fingers and tell you that you're "doing it wrong".

i wish it was a better quality book, but i guess no one was interested in publishing it so the author self-published. great resource since there aren't a lot of books out there that talk about "combination knitting" which is how i knit.
the photos in my copy were poor, but the knitting information was wonderful!!
i too knit like ms. modesitt and it's nice to have it so clearly explained.
interesting lady
