I'm not a particularly adventurous or intuitive knitter. I admire people who have the imagination to alter patters or create their own, and can do the math to make the pattern turn out like they want it.
Still, this book encouraged me to try some of the patterns within, and they are wonderful. My favorite is the Circular Shawl that grows exponentially. Instead of a shawl, I made a large baby blanket.
Elizabeth Zimmermann was not only a wonderful knitter and designer, she wrote well. It often feels like you are reading a very interesting letter from a smart, funny friend.
