it was amazing
Read in January, 2007

I liked this book for several reasons... I even took notes!

The titles of my notes are:
How to hide discrepancies between dye lots. Loose knitters vs. tight knitters (finally didn't feel so bad about knitting loosely). Gauge and needle size adjusting. And designing your own garments, of course! I read this book when I had just begun to get into knitting, I could get so much more out of it today...

This book was more philosophical than the other books I've read about knitting, like the books on learning to knit or the pattern books. And 3 years later it still sticks out as a more philosophical book but now I can imagine myself actually knitting an adult sized sweater. So the 2nd half of the book would be even more interesting to me now.
