About the Author
Elizabeth Zimmermann is the author of several knitting books, including Knitting without Tears, Knitter's Alamanc, Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Workshop, Knitting Around, The Opinionated Knitter, and Knit One Knit All. Additionally, she instructs knitters in the Knitting Glossary DVD, Knitting Around DVD, and Knitting Workshop DVD. Elizabeth Zimmermann is known for her innovative techniques and sweater construction, including her percentage system for sweater design. Her writing style and humor have helped many knitters gain the confidence to design their own garments and free themselves from the limitations of stitch by stitch knitting patterns. Her designs are as well-loved as her instruction. The Baby Surprise Jacket is one of the most popular sweater patterns for babies; all of her designs feature construction that delights knitters and allows them to amend their garments to their own tastes.

I think it's going to be good reading, don't get me wrong! I like what she covers in the book. But I'm not sure how much I'll be helped with some skills (color knitting, for example). I personally just found it a little unclear. I will say that I understand her being well liked, because she writes with a sense of humor.
I am also sorry it wasn't updated to include color photos, as someone else mentioned in a review. Finally, I wouldn't recommend this to someone looking for an absolutely beginner book. She definitely assumes some knitting experience.
Happy knitting and a wonderful, fulfilling life to you all,
