I was very disappointed in this book. This is more of an autobiography than a knitting book and the one pattern I would have loved I could not follow for love nor money.
I would not recommend for the average knitter like me and would only think that very experienced knitters could enjoy this book.
If your interested in the life of Elizabeth then this is a lovely book.

This book was not at all like I expected. First of all....most of the book is stories about Elizabeth. I was wanting more information about seamless sweater design and instruction. If you want to know more about Elizabeths personal history then this book is for you. If you need instructions for sweaters, I would suggest Knitting without Tears or Knitting workshop. I am re saling my book.

I don't have a zillion knitting books, I live in Australia where you walk into most book stores you're lucky to find more then one book on the topic. So when I saw this, highly recommended, a must have blah blah and with EZ's famous reputation that I'd heard about.. i bought it.
I'm thinking EH? I don't understand a thing she says.. she writes like she's sitting there talking to you.. but she's not is she? If that's the way I wanted to read patterns, it would be accompanied with the visual teaching.
Look no offense to all the EZ fans, but I doubt very much I'd refer to this, treat it as a "must have" or even bother with the black and white pictures, old stories of her life, and just well.. badly written patterns and ideas.

The instructions are fine for knitting sweaters without seams, but the chattiness and stories make it hard to find the useful bits.

I was quite unimpressed with this book. The look is very old fashioned and dated, and the garments pictured are lifeless and dull looking. Not an inspiring book at all, even if she is a knitting guru!
