Wonderful gathering of knitting's elite.
on June 16, 2007
First let me state that whenever a book says "Best of...", it probably contains reprints of things you may have already seen or read. If you have all the old issues of Vogue, and want something new, then don't buy this. If you're not so fortunate, this is a wonderful way to read highlights written by some of the most prominent names in knitting. There are reflections and techniques. I enjoyed reading how Barbara Walker began knitting (and gave up!). There are things written by knitters no longer with us, and some by current authors. It has a pleasing format and enough pictures that you can enjoy skimming, just stopping here and there to read. I'm very glad I purchased it, and look forward to reading every article. I do recommend you sit at a table/desk to read, because at just over 3 pounds, this is a heavy tome to hold in your lap.
